    Smart Health Card

    I received an email last evening from Vacations by Aruba stating that fully vaccinated people can now enter Aruba IF they have a Smart Health Card. I called the Department of Health in my county of Florida and they do not issue them. Has anyone gotten one, and if so, is there another avenue I can explore that would provide this card? If a person cannot get a card, will they have to be tested again 72 hours before travel. Thank you.

    Ok...if they are accepting them, then why isn't anyone making them available so people can travel hassle free. Thought that was part of the reason to get vaccinated. hmm...We're coming in October and I and not thrilled at having to be tested before arriving and before entering the US. I've searched all over on how to get the card, heck show me where I can get the card and I'll get vaccinated again so I can get it digitally this time LOL

    welcome to the aruba.com community forum.

    you can be sure that the plans/protocols will change by October
    all of this takes time...baby steps.
    you can go to your nearest Walmart or Sams pharmacy and ask about re-vaccinating.

    I think CommonPass is the app you use to upload your vaccine record from the Smart Health card. But who knows!

    I came back to Aruba last week from a dive trip. I showed them my vaccine card. They said that will not work because there is so much counterfeit cards. They said if you can show them on your phone, then they will accept it. So I made a account on Walgreens and not I can log into my account and the 2 shots show up. I am going to go and find out if this will work. I will keep you posted.

    Hello, and I had the same problem with CVS whom gave me the shots. I reside in PA. When I called CVS whom issued me my shots, they had no idea what I was talking about and gave me corporate number which again did not know what a Smart Health Card is. Its actually only in a few states and a few clinics that are involved. Not all business that gave shots are in this new program. They should have issued each of us an electronic scanner card when we got our shot. I gave up. Wow and I just found out today that the mandatory Health Care Insurance price dropped from $30.00 to $15.. per person . Getting better but this Delta is getting worse. Timothy.

    just so everyone is in the know..............
    as of a couple of days ago, ALL travelers to Aruba regardless of vaccination status must test again.

    72 to 12 hours prior. (see the type of test on Aruba.com). https://www.aruba.com/us/traveler-he...uirementsthere is testing available at Aruba's airport upon arrival.
