'Vaccinated But...': Delay In Covaxin Approval By WHO Hits Indian Travellers


Sugathan P.R., who has been stuck in a hamlet for nine months and is unable to return to his job in Saudi Arabia, is expecting that the World Health Organization would approve the COVID-19 shot Covaxin, allowing him to return.

WHO Delays Covaxin Approval: Millions of Indians have taken Covaxin, including Mr Sugathan, and many have complained about travel difficulties because the vaccine is not recognized for foreign travel by various nations.

“I can’t stay here any longer,” said Sugathan, 57, who returned to Pandalam village in Kerala in January to be with his family after missing his father’s burial last year due to flight disruptions caused by the pandemic.

Mr Sugathan added, “I had the option of going to Saudi Arabia and taking (more doses of) Covishield after a four-day institutional quarantine, but I wasn’t sure of the repercussions on my health.”

“If the Covaxin approval does not arrive, I will risk flying to. Saudi Arabia and getting a. Saudi-approved vaccination,” he said, sitting in his big two-story house with paddy fields in front of it.

Following a meeting on Tuesday, WHO Chief Scientist Soumya. Swaminathan announced that the organization’s independent specialists had requested “further explanations” from Covaxin maker Bharat Biotech in preparation for a final review on Nov. 3.

Since early July, the worldwide agency has been deliberating on data provided by. Bharat Biotech, but it has stated that it cannot “cut corners” in making a conclusion.

The two-dose Covaxin is unlikely to be recognised as a genuine vaccine worldwide without a. WHO nod, complicating travel plans for Indians who have received it.

Because Kuwait does not recognize Covaxin, Rajan. Pallivadakethil Unnunni, 59, who worked as a welder in. Kuwait for two decades before leaving to India late last year, has been unable to return.

He’s currently trying to pay off a $20,000 bank loan by. Selling chicken at a little stand in Kerala for $4 per day.

“If I can’t return to Kuwait, I won’t be able to repay the. Debt and finish my children’s education,” Rajan said, sitting on a plastic stool in front of his shop.
