Roadmap for vaccination of International Seafarers

Published on 14 May 2021

Through its active involvement with an industry-led Vaccination Taskforce, IMCA has helped develop a roadmap which sets out procedures for a programme that can be implemented by all stakeholders concerned to facilitate safe ship crew vaccination during the COVID-19 pandemic. It can be used by shipping companies (their agents and representatives, including crew agencies), maritime administrations and national health authorities, in liaison with other authorities (such as local customs, immigration, border control, seaport and civil aviation) and seafarers, during the planning and roll-out stages of the vaccination programme)”.
