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”.
