3. What is the most important to take corona vaccine? How will registration happen?
Registration is of paramount importance to be a part of the entire process of vaccination. For this, help will have to be sought from the Kovin app or Arogya Setu app. Apart from this, one can also login to cowin.gov.in.
Here you have to enter your mobile number. An OTP will arrive on mobile. Create an account with this help. Then fill the necessary information related to the person for registration.
If the person who crosses 45 has a disease, then do not forget to proof it. In this way, you can fill your information and choose your vaccination center. 1507 can also be called for more information.
4. Which documents will be necessary?
You have to fill every detail carefully while registering. After this, you will have to take this identity card to the vaccine center. Those who are suffering from serious illness should also have their medical certificate.
5. How much will it cost for vaccination?
The vaccine dose will be available for free at government vaccine centers. But private hospitals will have to pay for the vaccine. 250 rupees will be charged for a single dose of the vaccine, of which 150 rupees will be given as vaccine and 100 rupees as service charge.
Two doses of the corona vaccine are required. That is, a total cost of 500 rupees will be spent on getting the Corona vaccine installed in private hospitals. While the corona vaccine will be given free of cost in government hospitals.
6. When will the next dose of vaccine begin?
The second dose of the vaccine will take 28 days after a vaccine shot. If the vaccine is missed after 28 days of passing, then health experts have advised about it. Accordingly, the best response to the second dose of the vaccine comes after 4 weeks.
If, for some reason, a second dose of vaccine is not administered after exactly 4 weeks, then it can be administered the next day. In this case, the National Guideline has been asked to follow, which says that after 4 weeks, a second dose should be taken within a maximum of 1 week.
7. Which vaccine will you get?
The government has two options for the vaccine. In the second phase starting today, the vaccine and covidshield vaccine are available. However, it has not been said yet whether the dosage holders can choose one of these themselves.
8. How to know if you have taken the vaccine?
The vaccine beneficiaries were earlier given a post vaccine certificate only after the introduction of the corona vaccine, but this will not happen now. After the vaccination, the central government will publish the certificate and then it will be given to the beneficiaries. It can also be downloaded later through the app so that later this certificate can be shown for jobs or going abroad.
9. Caution to be taken even after taking the vaccine?
Yes, it is very important to take some precautions after taking the vaccine. Like do not stop applying the mask. Corona rules have to be followed for at least 15 days.
People who get intoxicated will also have to stop getting intoxicated, as this will reduce the effect of the vaccine on them and will not develop enough antibodies in the body. Side effects can be encountered if not avoided after the vaccine.
