RS Sharma, Chairman, Empowered Group on Covid vaccination informed that now CoWIN does not schedule second dose vaccination appointment automatically. You should schedule it yourself as per the recommended gap between the two doses of the vaccine," Sharma said.

'CoWIN' is a digitalised platform for the effective national rollout and scaling up of the Covid Vaccine Distribution System. Registration and booking for appointment for Covid-19 vaccination is to be done through CoWIN portal: http://cowin.gov.in. This decision of the revised time interval between two doses is applicable only to Covishield and not to Covaxin, said the health ministry.

Union Health Ministry has accepted the recommendations of the National Technical Advisory Group on Immunization (NTAGI) and National Expert Group on Vaccine Administration for Covid-19 (NEGVAC) It has advised the states and UTs to ensure the administration of the second dose of Covishield to beneficiaries. As per the Union Health Ministry, 5,31,45,709 Covid-19 vaccine doses have been administered so far.
