Booster dose for senior citizens, frontline workers: How to register on Cowin portal for same – The Indian Express

Senior citizens above the age of 60 are now eligible for a ‘precaution dose’ or a booster dose of the Covid-19 vaccine. The same is also being given to those who are registered as frontline workers such as healthcare workers, nurses, doctors, etc. While the government has said that there is no need to register to get the ‘precautionary dose,’ and walk-ins are allowed, registering on Cowin can make it easier to get a fixed slot for this booster vaccination dose.
Cowin says users will be eligible for a precaution dose if the following conditions are met: If you are registered as a Health Care Worker (HWC) or a Front Line Worker (FLW) or a citizen aged 60 years or more. Further, one needs to already fully vaccinated as per the vaccination details recorded on the website.
The Precaution dose option will show only if 39 weeks have passed after administration of your full vaccination, which is nine months. Pre-booking a slot on Cowin will also ensure you are going in at a fixed time and leaving quickly, which is ideal given the rising cases for Covid-19.
Keep in mind that Cowin recommends that users should carry their registered mobile phone, Photo ID to the appointment. It also states that senior citizens, who are aged 60 years or more and who have co-morbidities, should take precaution dose, only after medical advice. Also, a session once booked cannot be cancelled, but it can be rescheduled. Once your appointment is confirmed, an SMS will also come with details confirming the same.
