In an effort to ensure maximum immunisation against the coronavirus, several states have announced their intent to administer free vaccinations to people between the ages of 18 to 44.

Last week, the central government announced that the third phase of India’s vaccination drive would commence on May 1, 2021:

Starting from May 1, all citizens above the age of 18 shall be eligible for the Covid-19 vaccination. Both state governments and private hospitals have been given the green signal to purchase vaccines directly from manufacturers for this purpose.

Meanwhile, the central government shall continue to administer free Covid vaccinations to eligible citizens including frontline workers, medical staff, and those above the age of 45.

States and Union Territories that have decided to offer free Covid vaccinations:

  1. Delhi
  2. Maharashtra
  3. Uttar Pradesh
  4. Bihar
  5. Jharkhand
  6. Punjab
  7. Goa
  8. Haryana
  9. Madhya Pradesh
  10. Chhattisgarh
  11. Sikkim
  12. West Bengal
  13. Himachal Pradesh
  14. Rajasthan
  15. Assam
  16. Gujarat
  17. Odisha
  18. Kerala
  19. Telangana
  20. Andhra Pradesh
  21. Tamil Nadu
  22. Uttarakhand
  23. Ladakh

In a recent tweet, the Ministry of Health stated that the registration for all eligible citizens between 18-44 years of age shall commence on Wednesday, April 28, 2021. Here’s all you need to know about the next vaccination drive in India:

Register yourself for your free vaccination here.

India completed 100 days of its Covid-19 vaccination programme on the 25th of April 2021. However, only 1.7 per cent of India’s population has been fully vaccinated so far.

With the unprecedented rise in cases and fatalities during the ongoing second wave, the administration of free Covid vaccinations at such a large scale stands out as a beacon of hope.
