India has officially granted approval to the Bharat Biotech's Covaxin and Oxford-AstraZeneca's Covishield vaccines for emergency use against the COVID-19. The Central Government has already asked the states and UTs to gear up for the vaccination drive before the rollout of vaccines.

Various states/UTs undertook the dry run for vaccine administration on January 2, 2021 to assess the operational feasibility of the CO-WIN mobile app in the field, to test the implementation and planning and to identify the challenges, if any.

The data of the beneficiaries to be vaccinated need to be uploaded on the Co-WIN app. Here we have shared the complete registration process for the COVID-19 vaccine and other important details. Have a look:
