National Health Authority (NHA) CEO RS Sharma said on Thursday that people between 18 and 45 years of age would not be able to avail free vaccination in centrally run hospitals. In an interview to CNBC-TV18, he clarified that Free Vaccination will be available only to people 45 years of age and above in government hospitals.
Explain that the central government has announced that from May 1, all people above 18 years of age will be given the Covid vaccine. Along with this, the Center said that now states will be able to buy vaccine directly from vaccine manufacturers and can also supply the manufacturers to private hospitals. The Serum Institute of India has announced new Covishield prices for states and hospitals.
Many states announced free vaccination
The Serum Institute said on Wednesday that the cost of the Covid-19 vaccine would be Rs 400 per dose for state governments and Rs 600 per dose for private hospitals. But many states of the country have promised to give the vaccine free to the people. Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Bihar Kerala and Assam have announced free vaccines. This means that all people above 18 years of age will get corona vaccine free in these states.
Sharma said that the government is going to start the process of registration for all persons above 18 years in the country. He informed that registration for vaccination will start from 4 pm on 28 April. However, he stated that the meaning of registration on the CoWin app does not guarantee vaccination.
