To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, what estimate he has made of the number of UK nationals who may be affected by the Government of Malta’s decision to deny entry to UK travellers who have had one dose of the AstraZeneca vaccine manufactured by the Serum Institute of India in each month that that decision takes effect.

No specific estimate has been made.

However, following discussions with officials the Maltese Government confirmed on 15 July that all COVID-19 vaccines approved by the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency would be accepted and United Kingdom travel advice was updated.
