Proof of vaccination against Covid-19 on arrival in Mallorca

Proof of vaccination is valid if a person is classed as fully vaccinated, as confirmed by the vaccination certificate.

What is the definition of “fully vaccinated”?

This is based on three factors: an approved vaccine, having received the full course of the vaccination, and the timeframe since the administration of the final dose.

Approved vaccine:
The vaccine needs to be approved by the European Medicines Agency (EMA) or the World Health Organisation (WHO). If you have received two or more different vaccines, only the vaccine that you received most recently needs to be on the list of approved vaccines.

Full course of vaccination:
To be classed as fully vaccinated, you will need to have received the complete course of vaccination (most vaccines require 2 doses).

Time since administration of the final dose:
The complete course of vaccination (i.e. in most cases the second dose) must have been given at least 15 days ago.
AND
The complete course of vaccination (i.e. in most cases the second dose) must have been given no longer than 270 days ago.

Therefore, your vaccination becomes valid from day 15 after administration and remains valid for 270 days after administration. If the last dose of your vaccine was given more than 270 days ago, you are no longer classed as fully vaccinated, unless you have received a booster dose (in most cases, the third dose) of the vaccine. This must be clearly stated in your vaccination certificate.
