Disclosing this here today, Health Minister Mr. Balbir Singh Sidhu said that all such citizens that are aged, or will attain the age of 45 years to 59 years as on 1st January 2022, and have any of the specified co-morbidities, which have been recommended by NEGVAC and approved by Government of India from time to time, subject to certification to that effect by a Registered Medical Practitioner.

Mr. Sidhu added that to augment and simplify the process of registration vaccination, the MoHFW is coming with COWIN 2.0, based on the feedback received during the implementation of Phase-1 of COVID-19 vaccination drive. He said that citizens will be able to register and book an appointment for vaccination using the COWIN 2.0 portal or through other IT applications such as ArogyaSetu etc.

He said that this new portal would prove helpful to expedite the vaccination drive especially to be conducted for aged people.
