Do kids need to be vaccinated for the green list?

We were meant to be going to Florida later this month but that has now been cancelled and the money safely stored in a British Airways bank account somewhere (for me to use before the end of 23).
I was thinking of booking a week at the end of August somewhere on the green list but my 17 year old and 13 year old haven’t been vaccinated. I have (NHS worker). I haven’t read into it yet but does anyone know if they need to be vaccinated?

I think the assumption is that you have to either be vaccinated or have a negative test before you go, but no one knows yet and it could differ from country to country.

It all depends on the entry requirements of the country you wish to visit.

There is no requirement to show proof of vaccination by the UK authorities either for leaving or return, it's test and from most destinations, quarantine, for everyone

The green list just means you can come home without isolating. The important factor is the entry rules of the destination.

Like @flashylamp says the green list refers to England’s rules. At least 3 countries on the green list are not allowing British people in.

Current UK rules are just around testing and don't say anything about vaccination. So everyone needs the PCR test before and after then there are the other countries rules plus our rules are reviewed every 3 weeks and countries on green list can be added and taken off at very short notice. I read only 4 countries on green list are allowing UK in without a quarantine period.
