NEW DELHI: Registration for the next round of vaccinations against Covid-19 is likely to start from Monday morning, enabling people to schedule their vaccinations on the same day, sources said.
“Co-Win as well as other IT applications and platforms will go live from Monday morning around 10 am. People will be required to just fill in a few details and upload the identification proof and publish. It is a matter of a few minutes and can be done on the same day,” a senior official told TOI.
The process of registration for beneficiaries can be done through three routes: advance self-registration, on site registration and facilitated cohort one.
While the vaccination will be free at government centres, those opting for private hospitals will have to pay to schedule an appointment. While all beneficiaries will have to upload an identification document like Aadhaar Card or voters’ ID, those between 45-59 years age will also have to upload a certificate from a registered doctor to self register or a hard copy can be carried to the Centre.
Apart from Co-Win, several other IT applications like Aarogya Setu and Common Service Centres will be activated for registration.
The health ministry is likely to make an official announcement regarding this on Sunday, he added.
People above 60 years of age and those between 45 and 59 years with specified co-morbidities will be eligible for vaccination in this round. So far, only health and front-line workers were being inoculated. Till Friday, a total of 1.42 crore doses were administered.However, vaccination sessions have been suspended for Saturday and Sunday for transitioning of the Co-Win digital platform from Co-Win 1.0 to Co-Win 2.0.
Similar to the first phase, all beneficiaries would be captured on Co-Win 2.0 platform and would be issued digital QR Code based provisional (on receiving the first dose) and final (on receiving second dose) certificates.
