“Government of India is taking all necessary steps to ensure that the nation is prepared to face the challenge and threat posed by the growing contagion of COVID-19. The exemplary groundwork and precaution advisory by the Government has helped in containing the spread of the virus in our country,” the Centre said in the user manual.

Vaccination is chargeable at pvt hospitals


Over 10,000 private hospitals under Ayushman Bharat PMJAY and more than 600 hospitals empanelled under CGHS and other private hospitals empanelled under State Government’s Health Insurance Schemes will function as vaccination centres.


In this round of vaccination drive that will run for six weeks, government hospitals will give COVID-19 vaccine free of cost while beneficiaries will need to pay up to Rs 250 per dose at private facilities.


The Centre has also specified that people above 45 years of age with 20 co-morbid conditions, including heart failure with hospital admission in the past year, will be priority beneficiaries of COVID-19 vaccine in the upcoming phase of the drive.


There will be only one live appointment for a beneficiary at any point of time for each dose and appointments for any date for a COVID vaccination center will be closed at 3 pm on that day for which the slots were opened. 


The eligible persons will be able to register at the Co-WIN2.0 portal through their mobile number, through a step by step process. With one mobile number, a person can register as many as four beneficiaries. However, all those registered on one mobile number will have nothing in common except the mobile number.
