  1. Travel to UK to obtain COVID-19 vaccine faster?

    The EHIC card is supposed to be used for emergency treatment while you are on holiday in an EU country not for 'normal' treatment as it is better in a foreign country than your own country.   The only way that you will be able to travel to another country to be vaccinated if it that country offers the vaccination privately and then you will pay for it. Maybe that will happen at some point in the future but probably not this year, as even the UK with their quicker rollout of the vaccine will need most of the year (if not longer) to vaccinate the population and to try to convince the stragglers/anti-vaxxers to have the vaccine.   If you are still registered with a Dr in the UK then this may be possible as you will still be on their list of patients so you will be contact when it's your turn but this is different than using the EHIC card.
  2. I decided during the Summer not to bother returning to the UK for Christmas and I thought there would be a rise in cases and  problems travelling.   At the moment the Germany isn't on the list of UK travel corridors (https://www.gov.uk/guidance/coronavirus-covid-19-travel-corridors) so you would be expected to quarantine for 14 days when you arrive in the UK and the same would probably be the case when you return to Germany from the UK.   As for mixing with other households, they say you can mix in a 'support bubble' but I'm not too sure what this is. I know children for separated parents can move between the two parents but other than that...   Personally I wouldn't recommend anyone travel for Christmas. I know it's nice to spend time with parents, grandparents, family, etc. over Christmas but it will hopefully only be for one year and once the vaccines get rolled out we can start to get back to some sort or normality without lockdowns.
