New Delhi: The registration process of Corona Vaccination for people above the age of 18 is starting from today across the country. Amidst the devastation of the corona, when it has become clear how important it is to get vaccinated, everyone wants to know how they can finally book their corona vaccine. So if you too have crossed the age limit of 18 years, you can register at home like this.
The new phase begins on May 1

All eligible Indian citizens can register for the Coronavirus Vaccine on the Government Co-WIN Portal, cowin.gov.in, UMANG App or Aarogya Setu App. Registration will begin at 4 p.m. Appointments at state government centres and private centres will be available based on how many centres have prepared themselves for the new phase from May 1.
A major change has been made at this stage. People between the ages of 18 and 44 will have to register online for the vaccine, which will start at 4 pm on Wednesday. However, people over the age of 45 can get vaccinated by registering at the immunization centre.
What is the process?
Registration will begin on the CoWIN platform and the Aarogya Setu App. The documentation process for vaccination will remain the same. For crowd control, the government has decided that there will be no walk-in vaccinations. After registration on CoWIN platform and Aarogya Setu App, check the confirmation on the registered mobile number.
Here’s how to make an appointment on the Covin Portal
Visit the Covin Portal (www.cowin.gov.in). There verify your 10 digit mobile number through OTP. Then the Registration for Vaccination page will open where you have to fill in basic information about yourself like name, date of birth etc. On the other hand, after the registration is complete, you can add 3 more people to your own mobile number in the account details.
