Is the vaccine certificate valid for 6 months only?
It is not carved in stone, they can always change it if new facts emerge.

Yes.
I guess life's never perfect. But at least you're protected since long ago while a lot of people is still waiting for the 1st dose.

Hopefully the vaccine validity period is extended as immunity studies show the immunity is still there after 6 months.

You should then feel rather lucky instead of complaining about a certificate. I would give up any holidays in the summer to have had such an early vaccination.

More likely a 3rd dose will be offered & the certificate extended for a further 6 months

I am very grateful to have had the possibility to be vaccinated so early, I know I am very lucky.
That doesn’t mean that I can’t express my disappointment about the 6 month validity. We are really looking forward to seeing our twin grandsons who we have yet to meet and who will be celebrating their first birthday in August. I just think a vaccine certificate will likely make that trip much easier and am fairly sure that vaccine immunity will last much longer than 6 months.

Likely immunity is much more than 6 months, here the peak of the first wave was in March/April but we did not see a big surge of repeat infections in the fourth quarter before any vaccines were available.

Re: Coronavirus

As I understood it, they would be reviewing the time limit for the vaccinated. It's only the time limit for the recovered that is fixed.

Indeed yet loads of 'fear' that having had covid gave no protection. This was circulated in the media & probably in this thread over many months.

That’s what they said which is pissing me off immensely as if the six months starts from the date of the second vaccination ours will expire on July 26th which is before our planned trip to the UK.
I had my antibodies measured last week and I still have shedloads of them.
Yep. I assume this will change when they have evidence that it lasts longer than 6 months - I hope, because a booster jab every 6 months will be very annoying

But bearable, provided the infrastructure is present to support it.

Doctors and hospitals have been using masks widely since 1910 and now you want a full review
But they operate in a sterile operating theatre and not on buses.

Don’t you think it would be useful to know if any studies show how effective masks have been?

I’m happy to continue wearing in shops or on transport but some validation or reasoning backed by data would be helpful to justify.

The last 15 months have been very annoying. A 6 monthly booster would be trivial after that.

Until your own triggered or exhausted immune system puts itself on a strike.

I am actually really starting to doubt this "wear a mask at all times" and "get ready for a jab every 6mo". Especially if it's endorsed by the WHO.

Re: Coronavirus

It is incredible how politicised this has become, was there ever in history a similar example? In the past, China never disputed that it was the point of origin of the 1957 Asian Flu pandemic, the 1968 Hong Kong Flu pandemic, the 2002–2004 SARS epidemic, and the 2013 H7N9 influenza outbreak.

According to Pew Research, public opinion about coronavirus is more politically divided in U.S. than in other advanced economies.

The conservative media are now queuing up to attack Tony Fauci. Killing the messenger has been popular for thousands of years but without any identified tangible benefit.
Another example of politicised is 100% of the US Congress House Democrats are vaccinated, whereas, among the Republican conference, only 95 of the 212 members -- 44.8% -- have said they are vaccinated.

180 days starting 11 days after the 2nd jab initially, an extension is already being discussed. 180 days for recovered, no extension.

So Belgianmum gets 11 days more than she thought!

Assuming you actually need a 6 month booster... and assuming it's available and allowed.
