On-site registrations allow people who cannot register in advance or those who do not have access to a smartphone or the Internet to go to identified Covid-19 vaccination sites and register. on site and get vaccinated. This facility will be available in public and private hospitals.

Under this facility, the state or UT government will take proactive leadership. Specific dates for vaccination against the novel coronavirus will be decided where target groups of potential beneficiaries will be vaccinated.

State health authorities / UT will ensure that target groups are actively mobilized and brought to vaccination sites.

ASHAs, ANMs, Panchayati Raj representatives and Women’s Support Groups (SHGs) will be used to mobilize target groups.

Documents needed to obtain the Covid vaccine

Eligible beneficiaries, regardless of the mode of access, must be in possession of one of the following photo identification documents:

  • Aadhar card
  • Electoral identity card with photo (EPIC)
  • The identity card with photo specified at the time of registration in case of online registration (otherwise Aadhar or EPIC)

Once the beneficiary is registered and receives the first injection of a Covid-19 vaccine, a digital provisional based on the QR code will be issued (upon receipt of the first vaccine vaccine) and final (upon receipt of the second vaccine) as well known as certificates.
