From Recognizing Covaxin (COVID-19) Vaccine Today to Inviting South-East Nations to G7 Summit, Know what’s New in the UK

In the last few weeks of this month, the UK recognized many coronavirus vaccines in their approved list of medications. People with the Covaxin vaccine can travel to or within the UK from November 22. British High Commissioner Alex Ellis tweeted about this. This means India’s one of the two common vaccines, Covaxin is on the approved list of the UK. Those who jabbed with Covaxin can travel to the UK and need not self-isolate themselves after arriving in the UK.

They can travel to any part of the UK if they are vaccinated with Covaxin — a Bharat’s Biotech vaccine. The second most popular vaccine in India — Covishield was added to the UK’s approved list in October. High commissioner Alex Ellis added that people who are vaccinated with any medication recognized by WHO for Emergency Use Listing will be approved in the UK too. People, who are jabbed by these vaccines, need not self-isolate themselves when arriving or travelling in the UK.

The government of the UK added that it would boost the travel industry and help travellers to travel smoothly. Further, with Covaxin, the UK added Sinopharm and Sinovac from China to their approved list of medications.
