Foreign nationals are now eligible for Vaccination in India: Ministry of Health

Ministry of Health and Family Welfare:

In a landmark initiative to ensure safety from COVID-19, Ministry of Health and Family Welfare has taken a decision to allow foreign nationals residing in India to get registered on CoWin portal to take COVID-19 vaccine.

They can use their passport as identity document for the purpose of registration on CoWIN portal. Once they are registered on this portal, they will get a slot for vaccination.

A significant number of foreign nationals are living in India, especially in large metropolitan areas. In these areas, the potential of spread of Covid-19 is high due to higher population density. To counter any possibility of such occurrence, it is important to vaccinate all eligible persons.

This initiative will ensure the safety of foreign nationals residing in India. It will also bring down the possibilities of further transfer of infection from unvaccinated persons residing in India. It will also ensure overall safety from further transmission of COVID-19 virus.

The National Covid-19 Vaccination Programme is being implemented across all states and Union Territories since 16th January, 2021. The vaccination programme in its current phase covers all citizens aged 18 years and above. As on 9th August, 2021, India has administered more than 51 crore vaccine doses across the country.

I would once again appeal to all State leaders to keep politics out of the Largest Vaccine Drive: Dr Harsh Vardhan

Dr Harsh Vardhan – Union Health Minister:

Jungle Raj in West Bengal shall not be allowed to harm the Largest Vaccine Drive

LOP, WB Assembly Sh Suvendu Adhikari Ji visited Delhi yesterday to discuss repercussions of an alternative digital platform, not authorised by GoI, allegedly being used in WB to carry out Vaccination Drive

The matter is being investigated.

It’s alarming how satiating one’s inflated ego can take precedence over citizen welfare. Such a move shall give wind to distrust regarding Vaccination Drive, not to mention difficulties people may face in verifying authenticity of inoculation.

Just last week, after Sh Suvendu Adhikari Ji highlighted a grave irregularity, an enquiry was ordered in West Bengal at insistence of Union Health Ministry regarding vaccination sessions being held in Kolkata without following guidelines w.r.t. inoculation, recording of data & issuance of certificate

I would once again appeal to all State leaders to keep politics out of the Largest Vaccine Drive

Any steps to undermine the well planned process shall encourage racketeering & will be highly detrimental for the nation, all its citizens and our collective efforts to fight COVID19
