你能想像接種後手中的黃色證書上有小英總統的照片嗎?如此令人困惑的事情發生在印度,接種證明竟有總理莫迪的玉照還加上口號:「團結一致,印度將打敗COVID-19。」南部喀拉拉邦(Kerala)一名民眾彼得·M(Peter M)為此怒提請願,批評總理根本作秀,「他(指莫迪)的照片在我的證書上,簡直是違憲!在民主國家不合適,沒有用處。」他想要一張沒有莫迪照片的證書。法院將在下周聽取請願,並要求聯邦政府與州政府需在2周內回應;而8月時衛生部曾表示放上總理的照片還有溫情喊話等,有助於鼓勵人民遵守規定。

反對黨也砲聲隆隆,國大黨(National Congress Party)批評莫迪用疫苗進行個人宣傳;西孟加拉邦(West Bengal)首席部長班納吉(Mamata Banerjee)怒懟,「他也應該把照片放在死亡證明書上。」還有反對派執政的邦乾脆把莫迪的照片換成自己地方首長的。另一方面,印度媒體報導,這份證書對印度旅人帶來困擾,因為有英國移民官並不認識莫迪,遂認為民眾「詐欺」。

也有批評者認為,莫迪過於自戀,並利用資源累積選舉能量;支持者則說疫苗證書並沒有問題,因為總理是全國知名度最高的人。莫迪愛拍照眾所周知,而他的照片有時會出現在不該出現的地方,近日最高法院才裁決,官方法院的電子郵件需移除帶有總理肖像的廣告。
