The U.S. Department of Homeland security has released updates to the COVID-19 vaccination requirements for Ukraine parolees under the Uniting for Ukraine program. This program permits Ukrainian citizens and their families to enter the United States and remain here temporarily for a two-year period of parole. Those coming to the United States are obligated to receive their COVID-19 vaccine and follow several steps to be eligible to enter this country.
Prior to traveling to the United States, all beneficiaries six months and older must have one dose of a Covid-19 vaccine. After arriving in this country, they must submit attestation they are in the process of completing the vaccination series within ninety days of their arrival or eligibility for the series. It is important to note that beneficiaries that are younger than five years old can qualify for a COVID-19 vaccine exception since it was not approved or licensed for this age group.
