Vaccine Eligibility and Registration Process
How will I know if I am eligible for COVID-19 vaccination?
Initially, the Government will provide COVID-19 vaccine to priority group beneficiaries including the Health Care Workers and Front-line workers. Later on the availability of the vaccine, 50 plus age group beneficiaries will get administered. The eligible beneficiaries will be informed on their registered mobile number.
How will I get to know about the vaccination session site and time?
The Government will inform the eligible beneficiaries about the vaccination schedule and session site through SMS on their registered mobile number.
Can I get COVID-19 vaccine without registration?
No, it is mandatory for beneficiaries to register for COVID-19 vaccination. Beneficiaries will get details about the scheduled time of vaccination and details of session site only after the registration.
How to register for COVID-19 vaccine?
It is compulsory for beneficiaries to register for the Coronavirus vaccine. As of now, the District authorities will upload the registration data of the priority group - healthcare and frontline workers. Each medical facility has been asked to upload the details of workers working with them.
The registration for the vaccine will be done on the CoWIN application. For now, the general public cannot register for the vaccine on the CoWIN app. However, once the app becomes available for common public, the registration can be done. The CoWIN app has five modules:
- Administrator Module
- Registration Module
- Vaccination Module
- Beneficiary Acknowledgement Module
- Report Module
Common people will be able to register for the COVID-19 vaccine through the 'Registration Module' by providing their photo ID.
