COVID-19 Vaccination Phase-2 Registration Open For Public At Co-Win 2.0 Portal Today
The first day of March sees the start of registrations for COVID-19 vaccination for a new category of more than 60 years of age and those between 45 and 60 with comorbidities. Registrations opened at 9 AM on the Co-Win app and other associated IT applications. January 16th, 2021 was when the vaccination drive’s first phase was launched, and since then, about 1.42 crore vaccine dosages have been injected among frontline and healthcare workers. The drive plans to cover a priority population of 30 crores through expansion. This move comes at an appropriate time when many states are going through a rise in covid cases, and India can only stay ahead of the curve by accomplishing a wider coverage.
10 crore beneficiaries are initially expected in the program where common service centers and IT applications will aid in the registration and walk-in on-site enrollment for COVID-19 vaccination Phase-2 registration that’s open for the public. A lot more people are expected to approach the program to get vaccinated owing to the fear of rising infections and the self-registration facility, which adds to the convenience. Besides PM Narendra Modi, who received a vaccine shot early this morning, several chief ministers and cabinet ministers are expected to get vaccinated, encouraging the public.
For vaccination, around 687 private hospitals under the CGHS (Central Government Health Scheme) and 10K private hospitals under Ayushman Bharat PMJAY will be used. The COVID-19 vaccination Phase-2 registration that’s open for the public will also be carried out at 10,000 government hospitals apart from the private hospitals that the state governments can utilize under their health insurance schemes. Those getting vaccinated at government hospitals will do so for free, while vaccination at private hospitals costs up to ₹250, including operational charges of ₹100 and the vaccine cost of ₹150. Only one vaccine type will be administered at a certain Covid Vaccination Center, which will not disclose the type of vaccine administered during the appointment.
