The Moldovan citizen who do not have Romanian nationality too will not take part in the COVID-19 vaccination marathon imitated by “Grigore T. Popa” University of Medicine and Pharmacy (UMF) of Iasi, Romania. The reaction comes after the National Committee for Emergency Situations on May 10 extended the state of emergency all over Romania for another 30 days. This way, only the citizens of the Republic of Moldova who have dual nationality can get vaccinated by using the Romanian identity card. The details were provided by “Nicolae Testemiţanu” State University of Medicine and Pharmacy” of the Republic of Moldova, IPN reports.
Starting with May 14, 4pm, until May 17, 8am, the persons who turned 16 can go to UMF Iasi situated at 16 Universității St without making an appointment to get the first Pfizer vaccine dose. The written consent of one of the parents or of the legal guardian is needed in the case of minors.
An Info Point will be set up on the esplanade of UMF Iasi. Twenty vaccination flows will be laid out in front of the University’s building. The large-scale nonstop activity will voluntarily involve over 1,000 members of the academic community of the University – teachers, students, administrative personnel, etc. The second dose will be administered at UMF Iasi in 21 days of the administration of the first dose, on the weekend, during June 4-6.
The Embassy of Romania in Moldova also provided specification. The Romanian citizens who are on the territory of the Republic of Moldova, including persons with dual nationality or multiple nationalities, one of which is Romanian, can enter Romania. To be exempted from quarantine, the persons should not have visited one or several countries with a high epidemiological risk during the past 14 days. The absence of the Republic of Moldova from the list of countries with a high epidemiological risk does not modify the conditions of entering Romania.
Those who come from such countries will present a document confirming the negative result of a RT-PCR test for SARS-CoV-2 done at most 72 hours before setting off (for those who travel by common units of transport) or before entering the national territory (for those who travel by own vehicles). The persons who come from countries with a high epidemiological risk who do not present a document confirming the negative result of a RT-PCR test for SARS-CoV-2 will have to quarantine at home or at the declared location during 14 days.
The children aged three and younger are not obliged to present a document confirming the negative result of a RT-PCR test for SARS-CoV-2.
In exceptional situations that refer to participation in family events related to birthdays, marriages or death, trips for medical treatment or surgery in cases that cannot be put off, modification of identification papers, leaving of the country, going to the vaccination center according to appointment and others, the quarantine can be suspended based on justificatory documents. The situations are analyzed by the county intervention coordination and management centers, while the cases considered justified can be exempted from quarantine by an individual decision issued by the Public Health Division.
The persons who transit Romania and do not have symptoms typical of the infection with the novel coronavirus, regardless of the country of origin or destination, are exempted from quarantine. For the transiting of Romania to be permitted, the persons must prove that the goal of their trip is justified and essential based on a permit of stay, residence card or visa, if such limitations are imposed by the transit or destination countries.
