Government hospitals with more than 50 beds will be issuing ‘vaccine certificates’ against COVID-19. The Department of Health Services issued a notice on Sunday directed all government hospitals with more than 50 beds across the country to make arrangements for certification of vaccine cards.
The department has directed hospitals to appoint a maximum of two focal persons (medical doctors) for the verification of the vaccination cards. Similarly, the department has instructed to vaccinate the citizens going abroad only by registering in advance from September 20 and to make the same arrangement for other citizens as well.
Earlier, only four hospitals in Kathmandu were providing vaccination certificates after verifying that they had been vaccinated. Now, the service is being extended to all government hospitals with more than 50 beds across the country.
