COVID-19 vaccine drive phase-II

The next phase of the national Covid 19 vaccine campaign begins today, with vaccinated health care and frontline staff operating on Covid’s duties. 

During this process, any citizen older than 60 years will be free from over 10,000 government vaccination centres to collect Covid-19 vaccine shots. 

This step would, besides, also involve individuals between 45 and 59 years of age with co-morbidities.

The government stated that people can take vaccine shots from government hospitals or select a private hospital. 

The price limit for the vaccine (up to Rs 250) will remain the same until any further orders, the government added.

Here is how to register for the COVID-19 vaccine drive phase-II

There are three options to register for the Covid-19 vaccination: 

(1) Advance self-register through online

(2) Registration in government/private facilities onsite

(3) facilitated cohort registration.

The Covid-19 vaccine can be registered after downloading the on-line Co-WIN app 2.0 on your smartphones and with the Aarogya Setu application from 1 March. 

Both government and private hospitals are operating as Covid-19 vaccination centres (CVCs). 

Information on the date and duration of the vaccine schedules are also presented in the applications. 

People qualified for the vaccine at this level will select their own CVC and book a vaccination appointment. 

You can also walk to identified vaccine centres and be registered and vaccinated if you wish to opt for registration on-site.

The State and UT governments would proactively lead vaccine registration through the encouraged cohort registration process. 

Furthermore, where reference classes of possible vaccine recipients are inoculated can be determined on the same date(s) for the Covid-19 vaccination.

State and health officials will ensure successful mobilisation and transportation of the target groups to vaccination centres.

Documents that one has to carry to receive the vaccination

Everyone has to carry one of the below-mentioned photo identity cards to receive the vaccine:

  1. Aadhaar Card
  2. Electoral Photo Identity Card
  3. Specified photo ID card when registering online (if not Aadhaar or EPIC)
  4. Co-morbidity certification for citizens between 45 years and 59 years of age (signed by a registered medical practitioner)
  5. Employment certificate/Official Identity Card for healthcare workers (HCWs) and frontline workers (FLWs).

Following the guidance of the Ministry of Health of Unions, citizens aged 45-59 years and who have comorbidity have to apply to a ‘comorbidity card’ to obtain the Covid-19 vaccine. 

The certificate must be signed by a medical practitioner.

This certificate (below) has been issued by the Central Government and its modalities have been clarified to the States and the UT. 

The certificate can also be submitted by the individual to the Covid-19 Vaccination Center via Co-WIN 2.0 App while self-registration or a hard copy can be sent.
