Anti-Covid vaccination for children aged 15-18 years will start from January 3. The children born in 2007 or earlier will be eligible to take the jab. Also, healthcare and frontline workers and people aged 60 and above with two doses will be given a precautionary third dose from January 10.

“The beneficiaries in the 15-18 age group can register themselves on Co-WIN portal. The beneficiaries can self-register online through an existing account on Co-WIN or can also register by creating a new account through a unique mobile number,” said a government spokesperson.

He said if online registration is not possible due to poor internet connectivity, etc., they can register onsite. The appointments can be booked online or onsite (walk-in). “For the new beneficiaries, Covaxin will be used, which is the only safe available vaccine for the group,” he said.

The spokesperson said the additional dose would be provided to healthcare workers and frontline workers, who have received two doses. The dose will also be given to all persons aged 60 years and above with comorbidities, who have already received two doses, on a doctor’s advice. The precautionary dose would be given to those who had completed 9 months (39 weeks) from the date of administration of the second dose.
