India began its second phase of coronavirus vaccination on March 1, targeting senior citizens and people with co-morbidities in the age bracket of 45-59 years.
In the first phase, 1.43 crore doses of Covishield and Covaxin vaccines were administered to two priority groups: healthcare and frontline workers.
While the second phase of vaccination comes at a time when India’s active Covid cases are under control, eight states — Kerala, Maharashtra, Punjab, Gujarat, Chhattisgarh, West Bengal, Jammu and Kashmir and Madhya Pradesh — have been a cause of concern, reporting an uptick in daily cases in the last two weeks.
Along with the Government Health Facilities, Covid-19 vaccination will also be provided at private hospitals empaneled under the Ayushman Bharat Pradhan Mantri Jan Arogya Yojana (AB- PMJAY) scheme and the Central Government Health Scheme.
The Delhi government has finalised a list of 192 hospitals — 136 private and 56 government — where vaccination will be carried out six days a week.
The cost of the vaccination at private hospitals will be up to Rs 250 per person per dose, while this is free of cost at government health facilities.
