COVID-19 vaccine: Online registration must for 18-45 age group to get shot

As the Centre has directed the country to start vaccinating people in the age group of 18 to 44 years from May 1, online registration for the COVID-19 vaccine has been made mandatory. The registration for the same will start on Wednesday, April 28.

Moreover, the central government has clarified that the vaccine for the coronavirus will not be available directly at the vaccination centre without registration.

With vaccinations open to all, there is likely to be a large crowd to get vaccinated. Therefore, it is important to register in advance and get vaccinated in time. Earlier, registration for vaccination happened online. Also, vaccination could be done by going directly to the vaccination centre and showing the Aadhar card. Now, this facility will not be available. Online registration is mandatory for everyone between the ages of 18 and 44.

Citizens between the ages of 18 and 44 can register on the 'CoWin' or 'Aarogya Setu' app from April 28. Moreover, the Aadhaar card must be carried at the time of vaccination.

On the other hand, if anyone wants to go to a private hospital and get vaccinated, this facility will be available to the citizens for a fee. Patients will have access to both public and private options. However, online registration will be the only way to get vaccinated at government centres.

The Covishield vaccine from the Serum Institute will be available to state governments at INR 400 and to private hospitals at INR 600. Bharat Biotech's Covaxin will be available at INR 600 to state governments and INR 1,200 to private hospitals.
