COVID-19 vaccination: prioritising sailors

07 Jun 2021 / India

Six major ports in India (namely 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 hospitals.

Seafaring unions and associations like MASSA, FOSMA and NUSI have also organised special camps for vaccination. The Union Shipping Minister emphasised that all efforts should be made to get the seafarers vaccinated before they join their scheduled duties on board.
