Major holiday boost as double-jabbed parents WILL be able to take unvaccinated kids abroad from AUGUST


DOUBLE jabbed mums and dads will be able to take their unvaccinated kids on holiday this summer, The Sun can reveal.

Plans to allow adults with two doses to travel in August to amber list countries are to be announced within days, with unjabbed family members exempt in a boost to late summer holidays.

But ministers are under growing pressure to bring forward the plans to July 19 to save the school holidays on the continent.

Earlier today Matt Hancock revealed that ministers were indeed looking at plans for whether double-vaccinated Brits might be able to avoid quarantine in future when they travel abroad.

An announcement is expected as early as this week, alongside an update on the green, amber and red list destinations.

But as The Sun revealed yesterday, it’s unlikely that many will be added.

At the moment only people going to amber list countries are free once they return home from travelling.

Anyone coming home from an amber list will have to quarantine for ten days at home.

And those who are coming back from a red list destination have to stay in dedicated quarantine hotels.

The Sun understands the new rules will mean under 16s will be able to go with their parents on holiday – but only if both parents have had two jabs.

And it’s likely they will have to wait two weeks after that for their protection to kick in – as is already the case in the EU travel rules.

Asked about the proposals this morning, Mr Hancock said: “It is absolutely something we’re working on, it’s something I want to see.

“We’re working on plans to allow the vaccine to bring back some of the freedoms that have had to be restricted to keep people safe.

“We’ll get there when it’s safe to do so. We want to do this right, we want to do this carefully and properly.

“But of course we do want to get those freedoms back. That’s the whole point of the vaccination programme.

“When I’m in a position to be able to say something more concrete then we will do.”
