People who received their two doses of Covaxin or Covishield in India can get their booster jab only at walk-in centers in UK

People who received two doses of Covid-19 vaccine in India can get their booster jabs at a walk-in-center in the U.K.

Currently, those who received jabs in India are unable to register their names on National Health Service (NHS) for booster jab as it has not recognized Covaxin and Covishield vaccine manufactured under licence in India.

However according to a Department of Health and Social Care spokesperson, individuals can access a booster at a walk-in center without needing their record to be updated in advance.

The spokesperson also said that NHS has been developing “booking service solution” and it will enable people with overseas vaccinations to contact the NHS and book appointments to “review the evidence of their vaccination and have their record updated”.

“This is expected to be live shortly,” the spokesperson said, according to a report by Times of India.
