A test marked "invalid" is not acceptable.

Travelers are considered fully vaccinated against COVID-19 if 2 weeks have passed since their second dose in a 2-dose series, such as the Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna vaccines, or 2 weeks after a single-dose vaccine, such as Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen vaccine.
The US government currently accepts vaccines approved or authorized for emergency use by the U.S. FDA and the WHO. Vaccines accepted are Pfizer-BioNTech (e.g., COMIRNATY, Tozinameran), AstraZeneca-Oxford (e.g., Covishield, Vaxzevria), Janssen (Johnson & Johnson), Moderna, Sinopharm BIBP, Sinovac-CoronaVac, and Novavax/Covovax.
Travelers unable to present a valid certificate may be required to comply with rules for unvaccinated travelers.
Any combination of 2 doses of an FDA approved/authorized or WHO emergency use listed COVID-19 2-dose series are accepted. The second dose in a 2-dose heterologous series must have been received no earlier than 17 days (21 days with a 4 day grace period) after the first dose.
For more information about accepted proof of vaccination, please check the source.
Mandatory travel attestation form
Travelers must complete a travel attestation form before arrival. This form will be provided by the airline.
Airlines may let you complete your attestation electronically, such as through the VeriFLY app. However, they may still be required to show a printed copy.

Fully vaccinated travelers are not required to quarantine on arrival. Travelers who develop symptoms must isolate and get tested.
