The Central Government has said that it is opening the process of vaccine registration for everyone above 18 years of age from 28 April onwards. Those above 18 can get vaccinated from 1 May in the third phase of inoculation.

All Indian adults eligible can register on the government's Co-WIN portal, cowin.gov.in, or the Aarogya Setu app to get their coronavirus vaccine.

So far, only those over 45 and frontline workers were being vaccinated against Covid-19.

Taking to Twitter, MyGovIndia has said that phase 3 will begin on 1 May, and registrations for vaccination will begin soon through the CoWIN platform and the Aarogya Setu app. There is no app for the CoWIN site, and registrations can only be done through the website.

The inoculation process and documents to be submitted to get the jab remains the same.

Bihar, Madhya Pradesh, Kerala, Chhattisgarh, Uttar Pradesh, Sikkim and Assam have so far announced that they will provide free Covid-19 vaccines to all adults above 18. Other states such as Rajasthan have urged the Centre to provide free vaccines for all.

The vaccination drive currently offers two Covid vaccines – Covaxin that has been developed by Hyderabad-based Bharat Biotech and Covishield that has been developed by the Oxford-AstraZeneca and is being manufactured by the Serum Institute of India (SII).

A third vaccine Sputnik V – developed in Russia and to be imported and sold in India by Dr Reddy's Laboratories – has also been approved by the Indian drug regulator.

Serum lists price for vaccine

The Serum Institute's Covid-19 vaccine Covishield will be sold at 400 a shot to state governments and 600 to private hospitals.

The Pune-based company will sell Covishield doses to Centre at 400 per dose once the current purchase order ends.

Earlier, the Centre used to get it at 150 each, making it the cheapest available option if one gets a shot from a government hospital.

Currently, India is battling a ferocious second wave of Covid-19. On Thursday, the country reported a record-breaking 3,14,835 new cases, taking the total number of infections to 1,59,30,965 since the pandemic broke out last year. For the first time, 2,104 deaths were recorded in the country.
