Phase 2 of this vaccination campaign will cover 10 crore people across the country. So far, around 1.45 core people have received Covid-19 shots in the first phase of the inoculation drive, which began on 16 January.
Leading from the front, Prime Minister Narendra Modi was the first person to take the Covid-19 vaccine shot as the next phase of vaccination against coronavirus began today.
Visuals of the Covid-19 vaccination drive, which is underway, have already started emerging from different parts of the country.
“For comorbidities, citizen has to produce a certificate from registered medical practitioner, in which one of the enlisted comorbidities has to be verified and certified by registered medical practitioner. They have to submit it to the center and on-site registration can be done,” Dr Rajesh Dere (Dean COVID Center, BKC Hospital) told news agency ANI.
Beneficiaries will be able to register and book an appointment for vaccination, anytime and anywhere, using the Co-WIN 2.0 portal or through other IT applications such as Arogya Setu.
Over 10,000 private hospitals empanelled under Ayushman Bharat PMJAY, more than 600 hospitals under the CGHS and other private hospitals empanelled under state schemes can function as vaccination centres.
