Corona vaccine will be given to the general public from March 1. The vaccine will initially be given to sick people over the age of 60 and over the age of 45. The vaccine will be provided free of cost at government hospitals, while private hospitals will charge a small fee.
The cost of the corona vaccine has long been debated. The government has finally announced the price of the corona vaccine. The corona vaccine will be available free of cost at government hospitals, while a single dose at a private hospital will cost Rs 250. The price includes Rs 150 for corona vaccine and Rs 100 for administration.
Registration can be done in three ways
Union Health Secretary Rajesh Bhushan and Empowered Group on Vaccine Administration Chairman Dr. R.S. The meeting, organized by Sharma, will be attended by the health secretaries of each of the Union Territories. At the meeting, the central government told the states and union territories that registration could be done in three ways. Advance registration using Co-Win 2.0 or the Health Bridge app, on-site registration at the Vaccination Center, and Facilitated Cohort Registration. Under Facilitated Registration, the government will rely on Ashavarkar, Panchayat members and women’s self-help groups, which will provide the authorities with information on eligible members for the second phase of vaccination.
What is the status of vaccination in India?
Vaccination against corona in India started on 16th January. As on January 25, 19 lakh 50 thousand 188 people have been vaccinated in 35,785 sessions. It was planned to vaccinate at least 100 people in each session. In view of this, 3.6 million people were to be vaccinated, but only 54.5% of them were vaccinated, meaning that 45.5 out of every 100 people in the priority group who were to be vaccinated were not vaccinated.
If we talk about January 25, only 47% of people arrived to be vaccinated. The problem with the Covishield vaccine bottle is that it cannot be kept open. It must be used within four hours after the vial is opened. Vaccine doses are also getting worse as more people are not coming, some states have not even adopted the method of vaccination by spot registration so as to prevent the loss of the vaccine.
Do you need to be vaccinated?
No, the government has repeatedly said that it is up to you to get vaccinated, but experts are saying that if you are in a priority group, you should get vaccinated for two reasons.
You are at higher risk of getting infected with coronavirus than others. This is why you have been placed in the priority group. If you get vaccinated, you will not only be protected against corona, but you will also be able to prevent it from reaching other people.
You can cause coronavirus infections to your personal individuals. If you stay safe, you will inevitably be able to protect your personal life as well. If any of your personal people fall into the high-risk category, you may also need to be vaccinated.
