You all have seen how the situation of the country is at this time. But how do you all avoid this? You will keep your hands clean, keep washing your hands, follow social distancing; you have to do all this in your home, but what is the permanent treatment for it?
The permanent treatment is a vaccine. And you have to get the vaccine as soon as possible, and now the good thing is that all the people above the age of 18 can get a new vaccine in our country from May 1st. So people above 18 years of age will be able to register themselves from April 28th to get the vaccine.
This will be the third phase of the vaccine, and it will start from May 1st, so two days are very important in your life, the 28th of this month when registration will begin, and May 1st is the day from which the vaccine will start.
State governments and private hospitals will put up this vaccine, and most importantly, the registration process will be the same as it is going on till now. You can register yourself to get the vaccine by visiting the Cowin app or visiting the Cowin website. Apart from this and covin, you can also make an appointment to get the vaccinated through the Arogya Setu app.
You will have to make an appointment online. The unique thing is that the entire vaccine will be given only to those who have taken the appointment online. There will not be a walk-in vaccination; that is, the first thing was that you went straight, and there you stood in line. It will not happen now, and you will have to get an appointment online first; you will have to get registered only then, you will get this vaccine.
You have to keep two things in mind while registering. First, you have to fill the online form, in which you will have to enter your address, name, and age; in addition to this, you will have to upload any photo ID.
When you get the vaccine at the vaccination center, you need to show the same ID card that will also be shown at the vaccination center you have uploaded. When you enter the PIN code of your house during registration, you will be allotted the center of vaccination.
Whatever available around your house will be allotted to you. You will be given many options in that too, and among them, you can choose whichever suits you the most, where you will find this vaccine.
How much will the vaccine cost?
Let me tell you how much money you will have to pay for this vaccine. So right now, no price has been fixed by the State Governments and private hospitals. But Serum Institute of India is the manufacturer of the Covid shield.
Therefore, it has been said that a dose will be given to the state governments for ₹ 400. When the state government buys, they will get a dose for ₹ 400, and private hospitals will get it for ₹ 600. It has two rates of ₹ 400 for state governments and ₹ 600 for private hospitals.
Now the state government and private hospital will not take much money from you on this, yet no one has told. Maybe some state governments will give you a subsidy on this, and perhaps the private hospital will keep some margin on it.Because when he gives you the vaccine, he has to bring the doctors to him, which will cost him.
Free Vaccine in These States – How to Get Free Vaccine?
If you live in Uttar Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Bihar, Madhya Pradesh, and Kerala, then the governments of these states have announced to install this vaccine in government hospitals free of cost.
The government hospitals will be provided free of cost, so the states whose governments have already announced this, you can go to the government hospital there, and this vaccine will be given to you for free.
Hopefully, in the coming days, some other states can also declare that they too will give you this vaccine free of cost in government hospitals in their respective states.
So if you have been announced here, you can get it for free, if not in a government hospital, then you can go to a private hospital, and whatever money they ask you need to pay and which will be around ₹ 600.
Important information for you is that very soon, the use of the foreign vaccine will also start in India.
