Anybody over 50 years of age or with co-morbidities can get a date, place and time of choice for getting the vaccine shots. Nivedita Mookerji and Sohini Das report.
The government has begun to scale up the COVID-19 vaccination process in multiple steps, but is yet to take a call on how much it would spend.
As part of scaling up, the appointment and registration system for the general public is ready to go live.
Such a system will enable anybody over 50 years of age or with co-morbidities to get a date, place and time of own choice for getting the vaccine shots.
The Union health ministry is expected to open up public vaccination by end of March after registration through Co-WIN, the cloud-based end-to-end IT solution for vaccination, sources said.
