Private COVID vaccination centers are required to maintain their facilities in accordance with Health Ministry criteria and can charge a maximum of INR 150 as a service charge for immunization in addition to the vaccine cost. The Health Ministry announced on Saturday that healthcare and frontline workers, as well as individuals aged 60 and up, will continue to receive precautionary doses at any CVC, including free vaccination at government vaccination centers. It stated that no new registrations would be required for the precaution dose because all due beneficiaries are already registered on CoWIN. It also stated that all vaccinations must be recorded on the platform, and that private Covid centers will offer both "online appointment" and "walk–in" registration and vaccination options.
