COVID VACCINATION SUPPORT TO STUDENTS

June 19, 2021

Dear incoming students,

Hope you are all staying safe and healthy. We are approaching the end of Academic Year 2020-21 and our calendar of activities for the Academic Year 2021-22 shall be finalised after receiving your feedback. Mindful of the possible delay in opening of classes, we advise all students to vaccinate themselves following the protocols laid down by the competent authorities. It is in the interest of your safety and health, you should register for vaccination and ensure that you have completed both the vaccination dosages before you start attending classes on campus. For those who are unable to complete both dosages, it is expected that you complete the first dose at least. For all clarifications regarding vaccination, please visit www.cowin.gov.in.

In an effort to support the students to endure this pandemic, the Management of SASTRA shall reimburse the actual vaccination charges subject to a maximum of Rs.1000 to each student who is fully vaccinated. The actual amount shall be credited to the student’s parent account following a registration & bill verification process once students return to campus. This is an option to be exercised by the students themselves in consultation with their parents/guardian. In the event, the student is not able to complete the 2nd dosage before returning to campus, the financial support shall still be available till they complete their vaccination. We shall try to organise a vaccination camp on campus if possible for the 2nd dosage.

Looking forward to seeing you all in campus soon safe and healthy.

Registrar
