India to Ship COVID19 Vaccines to Afghanistan in Few Weeks

After kicking off pan-India coronavirus vaccination drive, the Indian government plans to ship off doses of Covid-19 vaccine to neighbouring countries including Afghanistan as part of vaccine diplomacy in a couple of weeks.

According to Indian authorities, Afghanistan is among the first countries to benefit from India’s vaccine shipment and begin vaccination programme in the country.

While the initial shipments would be a goodwill gesture, the concerned countries subsequently would get the vaccine on a payment basis from either Bharat Biotech or the Serum Institute of India.

The foreign countries, however, need export clearance from the Indian’s Government’s National Group on Vaccine Administration for Covid-19 (NEGVAC) headed by Dr VK Paul of Niti Aayog.
