The Covishield corona vaccine, manufactured by the UK-based Oxford-Astra Zeneca, is approved by the World Health Organization and is used in a variety of countries. In this case, those who had been vaccinated with the Covishield vaccine in European countries had difficulty traveling to other EU countries.
The Green Pass system is used to facilitate people traveling within European countries. Corona vaccinators can easily travel from one EU country to another with a Green Pass certificate. Although the name of the other vaccine developed by Astra Zeneca was included in the list of corona vaccines to be given by Green Pass, the name of the vaccine shield was not included, making it difficult to travel to European countries.
In this context, the European Medicines Agency (EMA) for the European Union has previously agreed with various EU countries to give green pass approval for the COVISHIELD vaccine manufactured by the Serum Institute of India (SII) in India, and now the French government has decided to vaccinate Covshield.
Serum Institute of India (SII) approved on Saturday (July 17, 2021) France as the 16th European country to allow international travelers to pay for the Covid-19 vaccine Covishield, Serum CEO Adar Poonawalla tweeted. Has expressed his pleasure in doing. Poonawalla said that the fact that the Covishield is now recognized by 16 European countries is really good news.
