The UK said that those who have taken covishield vaccine could enter the country. However, Indians who have taken the vaccine in India still had to meet the strict mandatory quarantine rules while visiting the UK. A few days ago, Covishield was excluded from the list of recognized vaccines in the UK, later they approved the vaccine. On September 22, the UK announced that Covishield made in India and it is the version of the AstraZeneca vaccine, has been included in the list of approved vaccines. The UK divides countries as red, amber, or green and applies quarantine and COVID-19 testing norms based on the category.
