Vaccine Eligibility and Registration Process

Sharing what I have received as FAQ from someone in the Government as the vaccine registration process. Its currently closed for citizens.

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.

Is a Photo ID required at the time of registration?
Yes, the Photo ID must be produced and verified at the time of registration for vaccination.

What all documents are required for registration for COVID-19 Vaccine in India?
Beneficiaries may produce any of these Photo ID cards at the time of registration:

Aadhar Card
Driving License
Health Insurance Smart Card issued under the Ministry of Labour's scheme
Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Act (MGNREGA) Job Card
Official identity cards issued to MPs/MLAs/MLCs
PAN Card
Passbooks issued by Bank/Post Office
Pension Document
Service Identity Card with photo issued by Central Government/ State Government/ PSUs/ Public Ltd Companies
Voter ID Card
Smart card issued by RGI
What will happen if I forget to produce Photo ID at the session site during vaccination?
Carrying Photo ID is necessary for both registration as well as beneficiary's verification at the session site to make sure that the registered person only gets vaccinated.

How will the vaccinated beneficiaries get to know about the status of their vaccination?
After getting vaccinated with the due dose against the COVID-19, beneficiaries will get SMS on their registered mobile number. Once all the doses are administered, the beneficiaries will receive a QR code based certificate. more

Public has little inclination and interest for the vaccine. COVID effect has reduced and apprehension for vaccine continues in the mind of the people. more  
Friends let us analyse what has been vaccinated till date. This is all as per press information. Firstly the people who are being asked to get vaccinated are not coming forward for reasons known to them. Due to which the vaccination vial are getting wasted as it has to be consumed within 4 hours. Secondly there are side affects which are coming out slowly slowly. Now they say weak persons must avoid this vaccination. My logical question is a healthy person if gets infected he/she survives and gets anti bodies by default so he/she is protected by default. Then Govt is ready to send free vaccine to other countries but it is not ready to give free vaccine to it's own people. I ask why should I spend money when I have paid Taxes throughout my life and today I am again been asked to pay. I feel we must prefer a natural death if it is our fate. Let the Govt send free vaccine to other countries. more  
It is issue of Humanity WHO also pointed on Poor Countries more  
Let us wait for it's roll out for citizens other than frontline workers. more  
Don't discourage for This. Let not give chance for import more  
Here in Vadodara of Gujarat a pair of ASHA workers had approached us personally, at our residence. They'd checked our Aadhar card & election card, about a month ago and said that we were registered for the vaccination. Someone please confirm if that was enough for our registration. E-mail . more  
Thanks for the information. more
