All Aged 18 And Above Can Get Covid Vaccine From May 1


Everyone aged 18 and above can now get vaccinated against Covid-19 from May 1 onwards, the central government has announced.

The decision was taken on Monday, April 19, 2021, as India reported nearly three lakh new cases of Covid-19. On the day, Prime Minister Narendra Modi held a series of meetings to tackle the second wave of Covid-19, according to media reports.

India’s Covid vaccination programme was first rolled out for healthcare workers in January. Later, it covered frontline workers, people aged above 60 and above-45s with co-morbidities.

Mass vaccination is being seen as the only feasible option to deal with the surge in Covid cases at a time when various states are imposing lockdowns or night curfews.
