India opposes ‘Vaccine Passport’ in G-7 meeting, says initiative will prove to be discriminatory

To avoid the ongoing coronavirus epidemic globally, discussions are going on loudly in the countries regarding ‘Vaccine Passport’

Under this, it will be necessary to get the vaccine for travelling abroad.

Here, only three per cent of the population in India has received both doses of the vaccine so far. In such a situation, India has opposed the vaccine passport. Union Health Minister Dr Harsh Vardhan has called this decision discriminatory in the G-7 Plus ministerial meeting on Friday.

What is Vaccine Passport?

Due to the Corona epidemic, there is a ban on the arrival of foreign travellers in many countries. Due to this, organisations like the World Health Organization (WHO) and the World Economic Forum (WEF) are working on creating a ‘vaccine passport’. The United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) has also urged countries to implement vaccine passports. After its implementation, only people who have had the corona vaccine will be allowed to enter.

Vaccine passport initiative can prove to be very discriminatory – Dr Harsh Vardhan.

In meeting his counterparts of G-7 countries, Health Minister Harsh Vardhan said that this discriminatory initiative would not be accepted. The Vaccine Passport initiative could prove highly discriminatory.

He said that this decision is a cause of great concern for developing countries. This is because the percentage of vaccination is still deficient in developing countries compared to developed countries. In such a situation, this demand of developed countries can be increasing discrimination.

Earlier this week, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson had indicated that during the G-7 summit, an attempt could be made to reach a consensus on the ‘vaccine passport’. Johnson proposes to make international travel more accessible. However, it still has several problems because many countries where vaccination has not caught on full speed due to manufacturing or other issues.

One problem concerning India is the indigenous vaccine ‘Covaxin’ not getting WHO approval. If the WHO approval for the vaccine passport is also included, then a problem may arise. Bharat Biotech has applied to the WHO for approval for emergency use of the vaccine and has placed it in the category of urgent cases. If approved, it will be India’s second vaccine with international recognition.
