This new facility will be available soon on the CoWIN portal. The National Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation (NTAGI) on Wednesday said people wishing to travel abroad can shorten the government-stipulated nine-month gap between the second and booster dose of covid-19 vaccine.

Later, the recommendation was made to the Union health ministry. For the last few months, Centre received several requests seeking the precaution dose of Covid vaccine for those who have to travel abroad for employment, business commitments, admission to foreign educational institutes, participating in sports events, and bilateral and multilateral meetings as part of India's official delegation. "The issue was discussed in a meeting of NTAGI held last week after which it recommended that those who need to travel overseas can take the booster shot, before the stipulated nine-month waiting period, as per the booster guidelines of the country they are travelling to," a source told PTI.

Meanwhile, NTAGI is scheduled to meet again this week to review the data for immunization of children between 5-12 years of age for covid-19 and firm up protocols regarding vaccination.

Eurovision's tragedies - fatal plane crash, Covid complications and sudden death
Eurovision, the world’s biggest singing competition, is usually a happy affair and a chance to unify Europe with song and dance.However, after 66 years some of the show’s most iconic participants have passed and their legacy lives on.From the Alexandrov Ensemble Choir who led the halftime show to Michael Julien who paved the way to victory in 1969, some of Eurovision’s most recognisable faces still continue to make an impact on the show’s legacy to this day.Daily Star has trawled through the archives to bring you everything you need to know about the competition's tragedies.One of the biggest tragedies involved in Eurovision was the loss of 64 members of the Alexandrov Ensemble Choir.In the early hours of Christmas Day 2016, a Russian Defence Ministry plane went down whilst flying to Syria.Off the coast of Sochi, the crash had no survivors and 93 people were lost whilst travelling for a Christmas celebration with troops at a military base.The group, who sadly lost their lives on 25 December, had performed Not Gonna Get Us with t.A.T.u during the song contest’s interval in 2009 when the event was hosted in Moscow.The choir is the official choir of the Russian armed forces and one of just two choir groups that have the title of Red Army Choir.Örs Siklósi, the lead singer of AWS, performed with the band for Hungary during the show’s 2018 run.He died aged just 29 years old after a battle with leukaemia and his fellow bandmates released a statement upon his premature death.They said that their loss was “indescribable'' and explained: “In June, Örs was diagnosed with leukaemia.
