Amid the ongoing controversy over the European Union’s (EU) move to not include Covishield and Covaxin for its Digital COVID Certificate or ‘Green Pass’, India on Wednesday told EU member states that it would exempt their vaccinated people from mandatory quarantine if they recognise Indian vaccines and vaccination certificates. The EU’s Digital COVID Certificate, which has been created to facilitate free movement of vaccinated people during the pandemic, will come into effect from Thursday. Sources said in its communication to the EU member states, India has it will institute a reciprocal policy for recognition of the EU Digital COVID Certificate.
