The CoWIN platform’s Chief Dr. RS Sharma stated that youngsters may use their student ID cards to enroll if they don’t have Aadhaar or any other identification cards.
The administration announced on Monday that children between the ages of 15 and 18 would be eligible to register on the CoWIN platform as of January 1.
According to CoWIN platform Chief Dr. RS Sharma, children who do not have Aadhaar or any other form of identification may enroll using their student ID cards.
After PM Modi’s Christmas Eve speech, in which he announced that youngsters between the ages of 15 and 18 will soon be included in the statewide immunization push, the announcement was made today. A third ‘precautionary’ or booster dosage of the vaccination was also announced by Prime Minister Trudeau for healthcare and frontline workers as well as individuals over 60 with comorbidities.
Sharma also revealed that anyone over 60 who had their second dosage of the vaccination nine months before enrolling for their third would get a prophylactic dose of the Covid vaccine. According to him, the registration procedure would remain unchanged.
In other words, individuals who had their second injection by April of this year will be the first to get the preventative vaccination.
ICMR and the Translational Health Science and Technology Institute (THSTI), Faridabad, conducted five scientific studies and used their findings to decide to keep the interval between the second and third doses at nine months, high-ranking government officials who were involved in the deliberations told the news agency.
