Vaccination controversy by UK govt: See how the British govt is now doubting India’s CoWIN certificates

Vaccination controversy by UK govt escalates as it doubts India’s CoWIN certificates

After facing a lot of backlash by the Indian’s, the UK updated its list of approved vaccines and added ‘Covishield’ but still denies to recognise CoWIN certificates.

Earlier, UK government didn’t recognise Covishield as a legitimate vaccine and clearly stated in their policies that if an Indian is vaccinated in India, he will not be considered as a fully vaccinated person and will have to be under quarantine period of 10 days and have to undergo three rounds of testing.

On Wednesday, the UK government released a new travel advisory for foreigners amid controversies between India and UK. The new changes in the travelling rules stated that now they recognise Covishield among other approved vaccines.

But again UK made an another silly move, earlier thorough those discriminatory polices against Indians and now with not accepting Indian CoWIN certificates. The new policies stated that they will follow the red traffic rules but now Covishield is also added in the list of recognised vaccines but the travellers coming from India still have to be under quarantine period. This is because, UK is not accepting CoWIN certificates.

The 4 approved vaccines now are, AstraZeneca Covishield, AstraZeneca Vaxzevria and Moderna Takeda.” You must have had a complete course of an approved vaccine at least 14 days before you arrive in England”. Rest of their rules are same as before and the ease on travelling will start from 4th October, 2021.

Indians are again being provoked by the new rules and considering this illogical, what is point of approving Covishield when the Indian certificates will be not be considered as legitimate one and Indians have to still go through all the test and quarantine period
