    Thanks Doug and welcome to the forum! I tried to navigate Docket back in September but there were glitches and Aruba didn’t accept it anyway. Perhaps they perfected the app. But what happens if I got 2 shots at a mega site and got the booster from Walgreens? Are you able to marry them up on Docket?

    Mike, that is genius thinking on return testing. It makes a lot of sense!

    With regard to the US lifting testing requirements for citizens returning to the US, although I've read "nothing" to suggest this could be coming, I am thinking it may well come (and sooner than people thing).

    My reasoning is that the goal of testing is to prevent someone from bringing Covid from where they were (outside the US) to where they are returning (in the US). At some point, the powers that be (US CDC and/or the administration) will realize that this is not a meaningful contributor to the number of cases of Covid we have here in the states (the main driver being the behavior of our own citizens who refuse to take precautionary measures that would meaningfully slow the spread (vaccines and mask wearing when out in public)). Additionally, just because someone tests negative within 24 hours of their flight doesn't mean they don't have Covid (after all, how many cases have we read about over on TA of people returning to the US from Aruba who tested negative in Aruba, but positive once back in the states).

    So, I am coming to the view that making it harder for people to enter the US (returning citizens especially) is not going to meaningfully slow the spread of Covid (or new Covid variants) within the US. It seems like window dressing left over from a mistaken belief that locking people out of this country was really going to make much difference (and I thought it was a good idea back when the pandemic first reared its ugly head). My thinking has evolved. The CDC's will too - it is just a matter of when and what factors cause that to happen for them.

    Went to a concert the weekend of Thanksgiving. They required proof of vaccination or negative covid test. Guy in line a few people in front of me was trying to use a picture of his vaccine card on his phone. Security guard barked at him and said, "don't come back until you download the Excelsior app with proof of your vaccine". They had no interest in whatever other proof he was trying to show them. I showed my Docket App and ID and in I went.
    That excelsior app has a lot of bugs. I couldn't find any of my vaccines and ended up removing and loading app several times. Finally the vaccines came up but I could not load them to my badge. I kept getting error messages! Grrrr.

    Interesting. My husband went to a concert in September and we went to the Van Gogh Experience in December, both in NYC, and all we needed was a photo of vaccine cards - we had no issues. I have to navigate the Docket app so that it shows both locations of where we got our vaccines.

    Mine all show up - two from the hospital (RWJ) and one from the township department of health. It took a few weeks after I got the booster before it showed up in the app, but it eventually showed up.
