All above 18 years can now ‘walk-in’ to the nearest vaccination centre wherein the vaccinator performs the on-site registration and provides vaccination.

Many experts have said that an aggressive, liberalised vaccination program is key to preventing another surge of COVID-19, warning that pandemics often persist for years presenting in-surges.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi has time and again said that vaccination is the biggest weapon in the fight against coronavirus and has urged more and more people to get vaccinated.

After the catastrophic second wave of coronavirus pandemic, the vaccination drive for COVID-19 is going in full gear in India.

Currently, there are three COVID-19 vaccines available in India: Bharat Biotech’s Covaxin, Serum Institute’s Covishield and Russia’s Sputnik V.

So, once you get vaccinated, the government issues a Vaccination Certificate that confirms a person has been inoculated.
