Government announced COVID-19 vaccine for all above age of 18 years from May 1

Bokaro : In a significant step, the Central government on Monday announced that all those above 18 years of age are eligible for vaccination against COVID-19 from May 1. This comes amid growing demands for expanding India’s vaccination drive beyond those above 45 years of age, who were deemed eligible up till now, in the third phase of the inoculation effort.

“In a meeting chaired by PM Narendra Modi, an important decision of allowing vaccination to everyone above the age of 18 from 1st May has been taken,” a press release said.  The press release also said that in this phase, the National Vaccine Strategy is aimed at “liberalised vaccine pricing”, apart from scaling up coverage.
