People who’ve taken each doses of Covid-19 vaccines and wish to journey overseas could have a CoWin vaccination certificates with their full date of delivery, National Health Authority (NHA) chief Dr RS Sharma stated.
The date will observe the “yyyy-mm-dd” (Year-Month-Day) format and will probably be as per World Health Organization (WHO) requirements for worldwide travellers.
Speaking to ANI, Dr Sharma stated, “As the world is slowly opening up for business and travel, we are working continously to ensure that international travellers can travel stress-free. This new feature and the format of date of birth will be in “yyyy-mm-dd” format as per the WHO standards for international travellers.”
He stated that everybody travelling overseas can replace their vaccination certificates on CoWin by getting into their date of delivery as per their passports and downloading the certificates once more.
“Currently we collected only the year of birth which is reflected as the age of a person in the certificate,” added Dr Sharma.
United Kingdom on September 22 issued its new journey tips to incorporate Indian-made model of the AstraZeneca vaccine in its up to date record of accredited COVID-19 vaccines. The recognition of Covishield has come after robust criticism over UK’s preliminary refusal to acknowledge the vaccine.
