The Ministry of Civil Aviation under the government of India has released a two-page advisory for the vaccination of the Civil Aviation Community. According to the Government, the civil service personnel has provided unhindered services for the people during the emergency time so their vaccination remains a priority. The Government has also advised that the vaccination of civil service personnel should not have any delay.
The Airport authorities have been directed to contact state governments or private service providers for vaccination drive.
“The airport operator should immediately contact state government/private service providers (hospitals) who are willing to set up COVID vaccination centres at Airports. It is very important to tie up with service providers to have regular schedule for vaccination with certainty.
These service providers should be compliant of the guidelines issued by MoHFW that includes registration in COWIN, pre-registration of beneficiaries, management of Adverse Event Following Immunization (AEFI), etc,” added the Government notice.
