    I can't wait for the full details to come out. For me the definition of" Fully Vaccinated " is important. Currently the 2nd dose of a 2 dose shot is the definition of fully vaccinated in 99% of the circumstances. The booster is to help your current vaccination be stronger. Also, the documentation will be the other big question. Trying to go away shouldn't be so difficult.

    I'm thinking that the requirement is for boosters as well.

Yes, they do retest you if you are positive checking for false positives. I recently read an article about someone who tested every morning and evening(I can't remember why). He was negative in the morning, but positive in the evening.
    LMAO...That is too funny!!! Negative in the morning and positive in the evening. I guess the evening cocktails insured negative in the morning.

    We are waiting patiently for the details to come out as well. My lady friend isn't eligible for her booster for another two months. Hope she is considered fully vaccinated since our Aruba trip is in a few weeks. The headache and cost of testing before arrival is a pain.

    Don't think it is exactly official as of yet. I've been in contact with our Airbnb hosts and he told me it was mentioned in the news a few days ago. Hopefully we hear something official soon.

    The aruba prime minister announced it late last week.
    More information will be released when it is all worked out.
    part of the announcement was that fully vaccinated residents are now allowed in with no testing.
    Patience is not my virtue.
