US colleges, universities ask Indian students inoculated with Covaxin, Sputnik V to revaccinate

Many US colleges have a requirement for their students to be vaccinated. Indians are facing a problem as two out of the three vaccines available in India are not approved by the WHO. US universities are asking students who have got these vaccines to revaccinate.

A 25-year-old student from India, Milloni Doshi, said Columbia University’s School of International and Public Affairs has told her she must revaccinate upon her arrival on campus with a different vaccine. Doshi has already been administered two doses of Covaxin in India, reports New York Times.

“I am just concerned about taking two different vaccines. They said the application process would be the toughest part of the cycle, but it’s really been all of this that has been uncertain and anxiety-inducing,” Doshi wrote via a messaging app.
