How to locate nearest Covid-19 vaccination centre

Must read

With Covid numbers touching 40,000 (March 19), it is important to get the vaccine at least for those in the eligibility criteria. India started vaccination against Covid-19 on January 16 this year. In phase-I, only healthcare and frontline workers were eligible to get the vaccine. This month onwards (March 1), the phase-II has begun. In this, senior citizens and persons aged between 45 and 59 years with specified comorbidities are allowed to take the vaccine. Currently there are only two vaccines – Covaxin and Covishield – that have been approved for mass immunisation.

So, if you are wondering where you can get the vaccine for yourself or your parents/loved ones (who meet the criteria), here’s how you can look for the nearest vaccination centre around you.
