On 24 December, Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced that children between the ages of 15 and 18 would be allowed to receive COVID-19 vaccination from 3 January 2022. On 27 December, the government elaborated on how children can register for vaccines through the CoWIN platform. Children in the age group of 15-18 years will be able to register on the CoWIN app from 1 January, 2022, according to Dr RS Sharma, CoWIN platform head.
"We've added an additional (10th) ID card for registration - the student ID card because some might not have Aadhaar or other identity cards (to ensure registration of children for the vaccine on the CoWIN app)," he said.
As a result of concern over an Omicron variant, children between the ages of 15 and 18 will also receive the Covid vaccine shot beginning on 3 January. Covaxin, a vaccine produced by Bharat Biotech, has been approved as an emergency vaccine in children. Trials of Covaxin have shown that it has a very good immune response in children.
