The second phase of COVID vaccination has started in India from today, making it the world’s largest vaccine campaign!
In this vaccination programme, India has extended the number of people who can get vaccinated, now includes people over the age of 60 as well as those above 45 with co-morbidities amid a growing number of more infectious virus strains and a spurt in cases.
From today, citizens can register on the Co-WIN2.0 portal or Arogya Setu through their mobile number with a step by step process using photo identity documents. Book an appointment for COVID vaccination, anytime and anywhere!
