Kerala, Mumbai ease inoculation for students headed abroad

The Kerala Health Department Friday tweaked vaccination norms for those travelling abroad, allowing them to take the second dose of Covishield vaccine after four to six weeks of the first one, as against the existing 12-16-week interval recommended now.

Last week, the state government had included those travelling abroad for jobs and studies among priority groups for vaccination, to be administered Covishield procured by the government.

Health Minister Veena George said Kerala had brought issues being faced by foreign-bound passengers to the notice of the Centre, and requested it to allow concession for them in administering the second dose of Covishield. The state government decided to go ahead as there was no direction from the Centre, she said.
