Adar Poonawalla extended financial support for students travelling abroad, where Covishield is not an acceptable vaccine.

Adar Poonawalla, Chief Executive Officer of the Serum Institute of India, the manufacturer of Covidshield tweeted, “ Dear students travelling abroad, as a few countries are yet to approve COVISHIELD as an acceptable vaccine for travel without quarantine, you may have to incur some costs. I have set aside Rs.10 crores for this, apply below for financial support if needed.”

Poonawalla said, "I remain fully committed to helping Indian students quarantine abroad on arrival for their higher studies. The new Amber List in the UK rules make it clear that Indian students will still need to quarantine, albeit at a place of their choosing. They may, therefore, still incur substantial costs. I have made a personal contribution of Rs.10 crore (1 million pounds) towards the  #UnlockEducation scheme. The initiative will now take into account the new entry regulations with the goal of financially assisting deserving students."
