CoWin Registration For 18+ Age Group For Covid-19 Vaccine Not Mandatory, Says Union Government

INDIA Team Latestly|

Anyone over the age of 18 can walk in to the nearest vaccination centre to get registered on the CoWin digital platform & be inoculated against Covid-19, the Union Health Ministry said on June 15. It is not mandatory to pre-register online or book an appointment to get the vaccine, the government said. 'Vaccine hesitancy', the government said last week, is "a globally accepted phenomenon and should be addressed by scientifically studying the issue at the community level.” It said it was sharing a 'Covid-19 Vaccine Communication Strategy' with state/UT governments. Experts believe vaccinating people in the 18-44 age group - the country's largest demographic - is key to being able to lift restrictions and try and restart economic and commercial activity. India recorded 62,224 new Covid-19 cases and 2,542 deaths in the last 24 hours. With this, the country’s overall caseload rose to 2.96 crore, while the death toll surged to 3.79 lakh. Watch the video to know more.
