How to register vaccination for 15-18 years

With the rising Omicron threat, the Indian government has opened CoWIN registrations for the COVID-19 vaccination beneficiaries in the 15-18 age group. The registrations started on the occasion of New Year on Saturday, Jan 1, 2022. During this vaccination drive, children can do walk-in as well as register online via CoWIN facilities. You will also need to submit your age proof/ or a valid identity proof like an Aadhaar card, PAN Card, etc. After the vaccination is done you will receive a certificate of vaccination.

The government has mandated that all necessary protocols regarding vaccination of kids between the ages of 15-18 years will be strictly followed. Post-vaccination shot, the children between 15-18 years of age will have to wait for half an hour to keep a check on any after-effects. Following Immunisation (AEFI) the second dose will be delivered after 28 days. Children born in 2007 or before can register for vaccination. The government has also announced that states should have a separate line for 18 years and above and for 15-18 years age group who are getting vaccinated.
