The Union government on Monday announced the ways and measures for children in the age categories of 15 and 18 years to get their first dose of the covid vaccine.
Dr. RS Sharma, CoWIN platform Chief informed that children in the age group of 15-18 years will be able to register on the CoWIN app from January 1.
Additionally, students are required to submit their student identity cards for the registration process for Covid vaccination. So, apart from Aadhaar cards for identity proofs, students can also submit their class 10th registration certificates.
Last week, PM Modi, during his address to the nation, declared that children between 15 and 18 years will also get the Covid vaccine shot from January 3 onwards. Bharat Biotech’s covid-19 vaccine Covaxin has received approval for emergency use in children.
