Thousands of individuals are still waiting for their COVID-19 vaccination doses, despite the fact that more and more people are being vaccinated. The excellent follow-up question is, “Is the vaccine you had recognized?”

Yes, the world is starting to loosen travel restrictions and create new regulations that take vaccinated people into account, but various other countries have also produced their own specialized list of recognized vaccines.

Certain vaccine brands, such as Chinese-made Sinovac, which accounts for the majority of the Philippines’ vaccine supply, are even prohibited from entering certain countries.

This is one of those moments when a brand is crucial.

No worries, we’ve compiled a list of all COVID-19 vaccinations that are recognized in particular countries, as well as vaccines that are now prohibited from entering those countries.
