If this has been asked and answered before, I missed it and apologize: If you have a CDC-issued Covid-19 Vaccination Record Card with 2 shots entered do you still have to get tested before they let you board a flight in Zihua?

Based on my experience this past March, yes, you must be tested if you have the vaccination record card.

If you read the U.S. State Dept COVID regulations you will find only testing rules that were written before the vaccinations started. There is nothing mentioned about vaccinations.

The testing process for me a month ago 3/16 at the airport was easy and relatively painless, I went the day before my deoarture at 9:30 am and was finished before 10:30 am for less than $600 pesos. I would not let having to get tested to depart Zihua enter into my calculations as to whether I would or would not travel to Zihua now.

As of Jan. 26, the CDC requires all passengers, regardless of vaccination status, traveling to the U.S. from a foreign country (including American citizens) to show proof of a negative COVID-19 test taken no more than three days before their flight.

A covid text is still necessary post vaccine because you can still get covid even though you are vaccinated....you must still wear a mask after you're vaccinated....

So what’s the point of the vaccine if you can still get Covid? Will we be wearing masks for the next century?

Assuming that you are being serious (which admittedly a big assumption) the vaccine drastically lowers the odds of not only getting Covid but also dying from it. There is no vaccine that is 100% effective. Mask wearing is more interesting. There was essentially no flu season this year, it may be due in part to social distancing and mask wearing. So it is possible that continued mask wearing in crowded places may decrease influenza.

One has to ask how many flu cases were diagnosed as covid. Thus the high numbers of covid and non-existence of the flu.

There are ways and sources for finding that information. One metric that may be interesting for those who think that Flu illnesses were misdiaganosed as Covid would be to look at excess deaths recorded. In any given country the number of deaths per year and even month is fairly predictable if there are no extraordinary events. A spike or deviation in those numbers is often an indicator that something new and outside of the ordinary is happening. The CDC posts these numbers for all to see and here is the link. Here is the graph for the U.S.

There are similar statistics for Mexico and many other countries. This isn't definitive proof that all of the excess deaths were from Covid but it is supporting evidence of the mountains of other medical information that demonstrates that Covid is real and the death rate was higher.

At least in Washington state to be counted as a Covid death, the patient has to test positive for,Covid. So precisely none of the Covid deaths are due to flu.
