Frontline and healthcare workers can no longer register for COVID-19 vaccination: Health Ministry



New Delhi:

Frontline medical and healthcare workers can no longer register for COVID-19 vaccination, the Health Ministry said today. It said the move is to ensure vaccine coverage expands quickly to include more categories of people, such as those above 45, as frontline medical and healthcare workers have already got first priority and enough time to get vaccinated.

Some ineligible beneficiaries in these two categories have been found adding their names and getting vaccinated in violation of guidelines, the Health Ministry said in the order.

Union Health Secretary Rajesh Bhushan said registration of people above 45 will continue on the CoWIN website and asked states and Union Territories to ensure quick vaccination of healthcare and frontline medical workers who have already registered.

When vaccination started in the country in January, there were reports about some healthcare and frontline medical staff showing hesitancy to take the jab. They were thereafter asked to get inoculated as they would not get another chance later. Doctors and other health professionals were the first categories to be vaccinated in the country.
