How do you know you have been fully vaccinated?


You will be considered fully vaccinated two weeks after getting the full dosage of any Covid-19 vaccine under WHO’s Emergency Use Listing (Pfizer-BioNTech/Comirnaty, Moderna mRNA, Sinovac, Sinopharm, AstraZeneca, Johnson & Johnson and the Serum Institute of India's Covishield vaccine).


The easing of restrictions for the “fully vaccinated individuals” mentioned above is also inclusive of “unvaccinated individuals” who have recovered from Covid-19 or have negative pre-event test results in the past 24 h before the end of the event. Otherwise they are to stick to the measures given for the unvaccinated individuals.
