LG Manoj Sinha launches COVID vaccination for children between the age of 15 & 18 years from Government Boys Higher Secondary School, Jammu

While talking to media, Sinha said “5 districts have achieved 100% vaccination (2 dose) for people above 18. I hope everyone will be vaccinated in the coming week,”

On December 25, Hon’ble Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi announced the inclusion of the 15 to 18 year age group in the National Covid Immunization programme from January 03, 2022. The decision taken was based on the advice of technical experts on immunization looking into the scientific evidence generated globally on children’s vaccination against Covid-19.

The eligible teenagers will be administered only Bharat Biotech’s COVAXIN as it is the only vaccine with Emergency Use Listing (EUL) for the 15-18 years age group and recommended by ‘Covid -19 Working Group’ of the National Technical Advisory Group on immunization.
Children taking the vaccine shot will be kept under observation for half an hour to monitor adverse effects, the same as all eligible people. They will be given the second dose after 28 days.

The facility for online registration has already been made available from January 01. Those falling under the 15-18 years age group can register online through an existing account on the CoWlN portal or can register by creating a new account by using a unique mobile number. The walk-in facility and on the spot registration at the vaccination centres will also be facilitated for such beneficiaries.
