Vaccination requirement in USA posing a threat for Indian Students:- There is a huge requirement for vaccination all over. The second wave of coronavirus is leaving everyone sleepless and the number of new cases are increasing on a rapid note. For the upcoming fall, the universities in the United States are in plans of on-campus classes and some of the universities are coming up with options of the students getting a vaccine for coronavirus. Some of the universities like Rutgers, Brown, Cornell and Northeastern university recently informed the students that they have to take up vaccination to attend the classes in the next fall season. The students from India may not have access to the vaccinations as there is huge shortage for the vaccines and the government is currently vaccinating people above the age of 45 years on a priority basis.
This led to a huge confusion among the Indian students who are yet to attend the next semester classes in the USA. Some of the colleges of USA informed that they will arrange the vaccination shots for the international students on their arrival. They are in plans to welcome the international students without missing them while others want the international students to take the vaccination shot in their country. The travel policy and the US immigration laws will continue to be the same during this coronavirus pandemic times. The university authorities also took up a plan to accept the vaccines that are authorized for use in the USA. Hence it would be quite tough for the international students to get the same vaccine in their country.
