President Carlos Alvarado said Costa Rica is trying to balance economic activity with population health.

“I understand what is happening in the hospitals and I understand what’s happening with employment,” said President Alvarado, speaking on Teletica Radio.

“It is not an easily dilemma, the one in which we live.”

The Covid-19 vaccine is also scarce.

Some industry personnel have opted to fly into the US for their "one-and-done" Johnson & Johnson Covid-19 shots.  While this brand of vaccine is available at Publix locations in Florida, the supply is somewhat limited. 

Not all US states will vaccinate foreign travelers.

It is not necessary to be a Florida resident to receive a vaccine although you must have a photo ID. Walgreens offers the Pfizer shot but requires two dosages spread out over a two to three week period, meaning you will need to book a return trip. 

Walgreens convenient to Miami Airport hotels include one just a few blocks from the Miami Airport Hotel (located in the airport itself).  Both a Publix Pharmacy and Walgreens are located within walking distance of the Miami Airport Hilton and Hyatt House as well as a Homewood Suites by Hilton.

A Walgreens is also located just up the street from the Fort Lauderdale Crowne Plaza Hotel and next store to the Holiday Inn Express Cruiseport Hotel just up the street from the Fort Lauderdale Airport.

Current roundtrip flights tend to be just over $500 between San Jose and the Miami area for midweek travel.

Arizona opened Covid-19 vaccinations to all adults 16 and over beginning on March 31, 2021. 

Arizona Department of Health Services Director Dr. Cara Christ says yes out-of-state residents, even folks from out of the country, who are in Arizona can get the vaccine here”.

Find a covid-19 vaccine appointment at locations such as Walmart, Costco, Safeway and CVS in the Phoenix area near the airport.  The Phoenix Airport North Holiday Inn Express is located directly across from a CVS. 

May 25 through 27 flights between San Jose and Phoenix were currently priced at $653 round trip with one stop.

According to the Texas Department of State Health Services, as of Monday, March 29, 2021, everyone age 16 and older is now eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccine in Texas. 

There is no residency or citizenship requirement in Texas to receive the Covid-19 vaccine.  A social security number is not required.

A CVS near the Houston International Airport is located directly beside an Econolodge Hotel.

May 18 to 20 round trip flights between San Jose and Houston were priced at $600 nonstop on Houston at the time of this writing.

The federal government is providing the vaccine free of charge to all people living in the United States, regardless of their immigration or health insurance status.  Non US citizens speaking to Gambling911.com have not had to pay directly to receive the vaccine.

In Costa Rica, 1,320 people are hospitalized with Covid-19, including 487 in an ICU bed, which has impacted the public-health system’s ability to provide quality and timely care for all patients.
