Arunachal Pradesh chief minister Pema Khandu has appealed to the people of the state to get themselves registered for Covid-19 vaccination.

Covid-19 infections have been multiplying in Arunachal Pradesh in the recent days.

At least 116 people have tested positive for Covid-19 in the past 24 hours in Arunachal Pradesh, though no deaths were reported during this period.

With this the state’s total positive cases have reached 17,546, of which 550 are active cases.

Meanwhile, the Arunachal health department is already vaccinating people above the age of 45 years, irrespective of whether he has co-morbid conditions or not.

The Centre has now allowed people above the age of 18 years to get themselves vaccinated as millions of people have been affected by the second wave of Covid-19.

Citizens can register for vaccination on the CoWIN platform and Aarogya Setu

via three routes–advance self-registration, on-site registration and facilitated Cohort registration from April 28.

The vaccines will be administered to this age group from May 1, although India at present is reeling under an acute shortage of vaccines.

The on-site registration allows those who cannot self-register to walk into the identified vaccination centre and get themselves registered on-site and then receive the vaccine.

For facilitated Cohort registration, the local administration will register for the beneficiaries.
