Republic Day Parade: Non-vaccinated people and children below 15 years are not allowed2 min read
People attending the Republic Day parade must be completely vaccinated against Covid, and minors under the age of 15 would be denied entry, according to a set of instructions released by the Delhi Police.
Police also stated that all Covid-protocols, such as wearing face masks and keeping social separation, will be enforced during the Rajpath event on January 26. “Both doses of anti-coronavirus vaccination are required. Visitors must have their immunisation proof with them”, Delhi Police sent a tweet.
It is said that youngsters under the age of 15 are not permitted to attend the gathering.
The nationwide Covid immunisation campaign, which began with health care and frontline workers on January 16, last year, was progressively expanded to include all adults over the age of 18.
Children aged 15 to 18 years old began receiving vaccinations this month, while healthcare and frontline workers, as well as individuals aged 60 and older with comorbidities, are being given ‘precaution’ doses, amid an increase in cases attributable to the Omicron variety.
The Delhi Police tweeted that the sitting blocks will be open for tourists at 7 a.m. and asked them to be on time. Visitors are recommended to carpool or use a cab because parking is scarce. They are also need to have a valid identity card and comply throughout the security check, according to the statement.
“There will be a facility in each parking space for dropping remote-controlled vehicle lock keys”, police tweeted.
On Sunday, Delhi Police Commissioner Rakesh Asthana announced that over 27,000 police officers have been deployed for security responsibilities in the national capital, and anti-terror precautions have been stepped up in preparation for Republic Day.
