The Indian government has commenced the process of Covid-19 vaccination drive for all the citizens of 18 years of age and above. The vaccine registration will start from April 28 at 4 PM onwards through the Aarogya Setu app or CoWIN web platform. The registered adults will receive their vaccination from May 1 at the selected health center.

India is going through its worst phase of Covid-19 with a maximum surge in active cases (crossing 3 Lakhs per day) since the start of the coronavirus pandemic. To get control over the worsening situation, the authorities have started pushing 18+ vaccine registration in the country. It is strongly advised to register yourself and get the Covid vaccination.
