All over 18, now eligible to be vaccinated from May 1, can register their April 28 shooting on the CoWIN and Aarogya Setu platform, the government said today.
As India faces the worst world of Covid, whose daily cases surpass the U.S. today, the government last week opened vaccinations to all adults for the first time.
Under the new vaccination rules, states and private entities can purchase vaccines directly for inoculations.
The center will continue to vaccinate those declared eligible so far – front workers, health workers and those over 45.
Are you over 18 years old?
