Vaccination in India is going on full swing. The second phase of the Covid-19 vaccination drive began in India on March 1, 2021. There are currently two vaccines that are being administered in India – Covaxcin developed by Bharat Biotech and the other is Covishield developed by the Serum Institute of India, Pune.
Registration is required for COVID Vaccination, which is either done by citizens themselves or by healthcare facility during vaccination drives. Citizens can go to http://www.cowin.gov.in to register themselves or via the Aarogya Setu app, which has CoWIN app integration.
