Here we are in October of 2022, and the time has finally come for my first post-Covid international trip. I have one bout of Covid (in June) and five vaccine shots under the belt. And I have my flu shot for when I come back to the United States.
Yes, I am taking my vaccine card, and I have a QR-code for it on my phone, but neither New Zealand (a transit stop) nor Australia (my final destination) require quarantine, health forms to be filled out or even proof of vaccination. Nada.
I will certainly take my mask to the airport and onto the airplane, so that I can put it on if I feel uncomfortable, or if I have to go to the confined space of the airplane lavatory.
