Third round of COVID-19 vaccination to commence from March 1 in Punjab

The third round of COVID-19 vaccination is set to commence across Punjab from March 1, informed Health Minister Balbir Singh Sidhu here on Sunday.

In this round, vaccine will be administered to senior citizens above 60 years age and citizens aged 45 to 59 suffering with co-morbidities as specified by government.

They shall be required to provide certification from Registered Medical Practitioner regarding the co-morbidity.

The pre-registration for vaccination is not mandatory in this round and people desirous of vaccination can pre-register or just walk-in for the same, he said, adding “however, it is advisable that senior citizens may pre-register in order to avoid waiting in the health facility for vaccination”.
