- Covid-19: The Union Government after due deliberations with scientific bodies has decided to start COVID-19 vaccination for 12-13 yr and 13-14 yr age groups
The COVID vaccination for children in the age group of 12-14 years will begin from tomorrow as the government has allowed the Corbevax vaccine to be administered to the 12-14 years age group which is manufactured by Biological E. Limited. At present the age of beneficiary in CoWIN is being filtered based on Year of Birth. The responsibility for verification of age (12 years) will lie with the vaccinator/verifier at the time of vaccination for the first few days as the provision for recording the exact Date of Birth in Co-WIN portal is under process. Once implemented, the system, by default, will not allow registration of beneficiaries who are not of the recommended age.
