GENEVA - Seafarers and air crew should be prioritised for vaccination as "essential workers", the World Health Organization (WHO) said on Friday.

It was a joint statement with the International Civil Aviation Organization and International Maritime Organization.

"They are key workers required to travel across borders at all times, which may result in the need for them to present proof of a COVID-19 vaccination as a condition for entry in some countries," the statement said. "We reiterate our call upon countries that have not done so to designate seafarers and aircrew as key workers."
