How to Register online for Booster dose?
Online appointments for precaution dose began on the CoWin portal. However, there is also the option of an onsite appointment.
Senior citizens aged 60 years or above with comorbidities will be able to get the precaution dose using their current Co-WIN account.
Beneficiaries can register in advance, on-site, or through the Co-WIN Facilitated Cohort Registration procedure.
Eligibility will be based on the date of administration of 2nd dose as recorded in the Co-WIN system.
Verification will be done preferably using Aadhaar.
Apart from Aadhaar, other IDs approved by the MoHFW are: 1. EPIC, 2. Passport, 3. Driving license, 4. PAN Card, 5. Smart Card issued by RGI under NPR, 6. Pension Document with Photograph
- Only healthcare workers, frontline workers, and people over the age of 60 with comorbidities are -eligible to register for the 'precaution' dose.
