Online registration not mandatory, govt says all adults eligible for ‘walk-in’ vaccination

The Ministry of Health and Family Welfare in its latest guidelines stated that online registration is not mandatory for Covid-19 vaccination. The government said anyone, aged 18 years and more can ‘walk-in’ for vaccination.

“Anyone, aged 18 years or more, can directly go to the nearest vaccination Center where the vaccinator performs the on-site registration and provides vaccination in the same visit. This is also popularly known as “walk-ins”,” the govt said.

In a statement issued by PIB, the government said that CoWIN platform is just one of the many modes of registration for vaccinations apart from walk-ins.

“Out of the 28.36 crore beneficiaries registered on CoWIN till June 13, 16.45 crore (58 per cent) beneficiaries have been registered in the on-site mode,” said the statement.

“The facilitators such as health workers or ASHAs, also mobilise beneficiaries in rural areas and those residing in urban slums, for on-site registration and vaccination directly at the nearest vaccination centers, ” the ministry added.

India started its vaccination programme against Covid-19 on January 16 with Covishiled and Covaxin.

The Health Ministry on Wednesday said that a total of 26,19,72,014 people have been vaccinated so far in the country, including 28,00,458 who were administered vaccines in the last 24 hours.
