The Delhi government on Monday launched a dedicated vaccine centre for students and individuals who would be travelling abroad for studies and work, and athletes participating in international sports events such as Olympic Games in Tokyo before August 31, the government said.

Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia had on Sunday announced that those travelling abroad for these specific reasons can get their second dose of Covishield vaccine at this particular centre after a gap of just 28 days.

The government said in a press statement: “Delhi government begins its special vaccination centre for citizens leaving for foreign nations for studies or jobs. Students leaving to study abroad, people who have taken up jobs in foreign nations and sportspersons for Tokyo Olympic Games can get themselves inoculated at Delhi’s special vaccination centre. This is our way to wish them good luck.”

The centre has been set up at the Navyug School on Mandir Marg. Those who wish to avail the facility will have to carry their passports and relevant travel documents.

“Vaccination for Admission.... Best wishes for those students who need to travel abroad for studies. A dedicated vaccination centre has been started for you at Govt School near Mandir Marg by the Arvind Kejriwal government,” said deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia in a tweet on Monday.

According to officials, this facility will be available to those who need to undertake international travel within August 31.

The second dose of Covishield vaccine can be taken after a gap of 28 to 84 days at this centre by students who have to go abroad for studies, people taking up jobs in foreign countries and athletes, sportspersons and accompanying staff of the Indian contingent attending the International Olympics to be held in Tokyo, they said.
