Mansukh Mandaviya reviews status of vaccination to seafarers

Minister of State for Ports, Shipping and Waterways Mansukh Mandaviya today reviewed the status of vaccination to the seafarers. He emphasized that all efforts should be made to get the seafarers vaccinated before joining their scheduled duties on board. Mr Mandaviya suggested that the seafaring industry should not get hampered due to non-vaccination. India plays a very significant role in the global seafarer industry. He said, there have been demands from many quarters to accord priority to seafarers in the vaccination drive in view of the nature of their work.

The Minister said, due to the recent intervention by the Ministry, Major Ports have started the Vaccination Centres. Six Major Ports which includes Mumbai Port Trust, Cochin Port Trust, Chennai Port Trust, Visakhapatnam Port Trust, Kolkata Port Trust and Tuticorin Port Trust have started vaccinating seafarers at their port hospital. A private hospital in Kerala has also been roped in for vaccinating seafarers.
