“I appeal to all those who are eligible to take the vaccine. Together, let us make India COVID-19 free!” he said

The prime minister went to AIIMS without any arrangement of “route” on the roads, thus choosing early morning to ensure no inconvenience to people, the sources said
The government had announced on Wednesday that everyone above 60 years of age and those over 45 years with comorbidities will be able to get COVID-19 vaccine from March 1 for free at government facilities and for a charge at many private hospitals
Citizens will be able to register and book an appointment for vaccination, anytime and anywhere, using the Co-WIN 2.0 portal or through other IT applications such as Aarogya Setu. (PTI)
