As India kickstarted the next phase of the coronavirus vaccination drive for over 27 crore people, registration opened on the Co-WIN 2.0 portal at 9 am for citizens above 60 years and those aged 45 and above with comorbidities. Citizens will be able to register and book an appointment for coronavirus vaccination, anytime and anywhere, using the Co-WIN 2.0 portal or through other IT applications such as Arogya Setu.
Registration opened at 9 am today at www.cowin.gov.in. Appointments will be closed at 3 pm on the day for which the slots are opened. The vaccination centres are open from 9 am to 3 pm.
In this phase, all people aged above 60 and those over 45 and with comorbidities will be able to get Covid-19 vaccine shots free of cost from over 10,000 government vaccination centres.
The coronavirus vaccine will be given free of cost at government hospitals, while people will have to pay for it at private facilities, except for Bihar. The Bihar government will bear the entire cost of the coronavirus vaccination even at private hospitals.
As India begins the next phase of vaccinations, here’s how you can register on the Co-WIN portal.
HOW TO REGISTER AT COWIN.GOV.IN AND APP:
To book your appointment or vaccination, you can also use the Aarogya Setu app. A separate tab has been created which will allow you to fill in some details like your name, age and sex and register yourself for the vaccination.
