Mauritius Officially Launches COVID-19 Vaccination Programme: Making Safe Travel A Priority

Mauritius Officially Launches COVID-19 Vaccination Programme: Making Safe Travel A Priority

In late January 2021, Mauritius officially launched its vaccination programme. The Mauritians that will have top priority when it comes to receiving the vaccine include elderly people with underlying medical conditions, frontline healthcare workers, as well as approximately 25,000 islanders who work within the tourism industry.    

Great News For The Tourism Industry

The borders of Mauritius are still closed to numerous countries, but the government foresees the vaccine changing all that as they plan to fully reopen and jumpstart the tourism industry as soon as possible.  Travelers wishing to visit Mauritius in the near future can expect to see quarantine requirements slowly ease off, and tourists that have been fully vaccinated should soon be able to enter Mauritius with minimal hassle and travel freely.   One of Mauritius’s major industries is its tourism industry, with hundreds of thousands of international travelers flocking to the island each year to view its marvelous beaches, so 2020 was a real knock for the Mauritian economy. But the government was resilient and it has paid off     

Mauritius Acts Responsibly In The Face Of The Pandemic

  Mauritius has been praised for having had one of the most effective responses to the pandemic. The government implemented strict quarantine measures that aimed to disrupt the normal lives of islanders as little as possible, and there have been practically no new cases when it comes to community transmission. In addition, Mauritius scored a perfect 100 for the Oxford University Stringency Index, which is an index that creates a score out of 100 for countries based on their pandemic policies and actions.   Mauritius is a responsible example for the rest of the world to follow.
