How To Register For COVID-19 Vaccine Via Co-WIN, Aarogya Setu & Umang

Here's how you can register yourself to get the COVID-19 vaccine via the Co-WIN portal, Aarogya Setu app and the Umang portal.

Registration for COVID-19 vaccination for adults over the age of 18 will be open from 4 pm on April 28. Adults over the age of 18 can get COVID-19 vaccines from May 1. Registration can be done through the Co-WIN portal, the Aarogya Setu app or the Umang portal.

Currently, frontline and healthcare workers and those over the age of 45 are eligible to be vaccinated. Serum Institute of India's Covishield and Bharat Biotech's Covaxin are the two vaccines currently being provided with Russia's Sputnik vaccine applying for approval through Dr Reddy's.

The Union Government is providing free vaccines to everyone over 45 and frontline and healthcare workers. However, those between 18 and 45 will have to pay to get vaccinated.

The state governments of Assam, Bihar, Chhattisgarh, Goa, Kerala, Madhya Pradesh, Sikkim and Uttar Pradesh have announced free of cost vaccination for those above 18.

If for some reason you are not able to register or the above tools are facing a technical glitch, you have the option to walk-in at the nearby centre and get vaccinated. However, you may be at a disadvantage if the particular centre decides to prioritise those with appointments to prevent crowds. Registration is recommended though not mandatory.

Once you receive the vaccination, kindly ensure you have received an SMS detailing the completion of the dose. If you do not receive the message, raise it with the officials before you exit the vaccination centre. This is important as the vaccination certificate will be a valid document in the future. You can also download the vaccine certificate by signing into your account on the Co-WIN portal.
