Lockdown

Due to an increase in the number of active corona cases, our Indian government has announced that all Indian citizens over the age of 18 will be able to receive the Covid-19 vaccine in India beginning May 1, 2021. The following vaccination drive will be digitised starting from the registration process to getting vaccinated because there is the possibility of high demands for vaccines and booking an appointment in advance seems a much better approach than walking in and wait for hours in a congested line.

The process will be conducted online, without the use of a mobile app, and registration will necessitate the availability of scanned ID proof. Registration address: www.cowin.gov.in’.
