Are Airlines offering any particular options regarding the sensitiveness of current times?
Airlines, Travel Agents, and/or Travel Insurance Providers are the most reliable sources to inquire from if you want to cancel an already booked flight.

It is important to note that our control on the policies of vendors is limited, some may entertain, others may not. However, we will give our best to convince and negotiate on your behalf. As we start receiving positive responses hinting that vendors are flexible for the transfer, indeed great news. Afterward, inform us with the next date to plan for the trip.

What is the best travel insurance if I would like to cancel my trip due to Covid-19?
Usually, trip cancellations are covered in the standard travel insurance policies. Insurer compensates for the travel cancellation or interruption for the events beyond your control and those which are mentioned in the policy. For instance, illness, death of the traveler, a traveling partner or death of the family member not traveling, unfriendly weather, a terrorism accident, and a natural disaster are most covered by the insurance companies under the head of Trave Cancellation or Travel Interruption.
However, the facility of “cancel for any reason” is available for purchase. You can purchase the option along with the standard insurance plan or as an alternative as well. The facility will cover cancellation or interruption even for the reasons not stated in the policy which can include covid-19. Furthermore, if you wish to have a real policy letting you recoup the expense, you need the “cancel for any reason” policy, the charges of which usually are twice the value of regular travel insurance.

Vaccines that are recommend for everyone in the United States based on their age, health condition, or other risk factors.
The vaccines that travelers must have in order to enter a country based on that country’s government regulations.
