P. Gunasekharan, deputy director, KING Institute of Preventive Medicine said that the institute was hoping to set up a toll free number so that people who want to get vaccinated can get appointments. People who get vaccinated will be given a card certifying the same.

"It may soon become a requirement for travel; airports authorities may demand it prior to travel. To have such a card will be handy," Dr. Gunasekharan added.

The two vaccines are available at subsidized cost in Guindy. Nasovacis priced at Rs.150, and Vaxifl is priced at Rs. 250.
