Nationwide 2nd Phase COVID-19 vaccination drive to cover senior citizens & people above 45 yrs with co-morbidities begins

REPRESENTATIONAL IMAGE
The nationwide COVID-19 Vaccination phase to cover senior citizens and people above 45 years with co-morbidities has begun today.
The registration for vaccination opened at 9 this morning at www.cowin.gov.in.

Citizens can register and book an appointment for vaccination, anytime and anywhere, using the COWIN 2.0 portal or through other IT applications such as Arogya Setu.


The vaccine will be administered free of cost at ten thousand government hospitals to these groups while the cost of the vaccine at around 20 thousand private Vaccination Centres will be borne by the people.


Union Health Minister Dr Harsh Vardhan has said that both the COVID vaccines- Covishield and Covaxin are safe and perfect as far as immunogenicity is concerned.


He said, the Prime Minister Narendra Modi took the jab first when vaccination of people above 60 years began today and he took COVAXIN, against which a lot of misinformation was spread even when this vaccine was scientifically perfect.


He said, the side effects are minimal like swelling or fever and it also happens during normal vaccination too. He said, the hospitalisation due to COVID vaccination is very minimal almost negligible.
