EASA publishes Safety Information Bulletin SIB 2021-06 Vaccination of Aircrew - Operational Recommendations

The European Union Aviation Safety Agency published a Safety Information Bulletin containing operational recommendations related to the vaccination of air crew.

The WHO recommends to prioritise transport workers, which include aircrew, in phase 3 of the vaccination, unless they have additional risk factors, in which case they would be prioritised on an individual basis. Nevertheless, several States have included among their priority lists for phase 1 and/or phase 2 the crew members involved in helicopter emergency medical services and air ambulance services, some of whom may have already received one dose of vaccine prior to the issuance of this SIB.
