UK To Add Covaxin To Approved List From Nov 22, No Quarantine For Fully Vaccinated Travellers

The UK government on Monday said that India’s Covaxin will be added to its list of approved COVID-19 vaccines for international travelers from November 22, meaning that those inoculated with the Bharat Biotech-manufactured jab will not have to self-isolate after arrival in England.

The move follows the World Health Organisation’s (WHO) Emergency Use Listing for Covaxin last week. Covaxin is the second most used Covid 19 vaccine in India after Covishield.

Covishield, the India-manufactured Oxford-AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine, was added to the UK’s approved list last month.

“More good news for Indian travellers to the UK. From 22 November travellers fully vaccinated with a COVID19 vaccine recognized by WHO for Emergency Use Listing, including Covaxin, will not have to self-isolate; so joining those fully vaccinated with Covishield,” Alex Ellis, British High Commissioner to India, said on Twitter on Monday.

The changes will come into effect at 4 am on November 22.
