The online registration for eligible beneficiaries began from 4 pm today while soon after registering many users from all over the country found that both portal and app were not working properly.  

The official handle of the Aarogya Setu app tweeted that there was a minor glitch on the portal at 4 pm which was fixed and the registrations are now happening.

It added that appointments will only be possible once the state governments and private vaccination centers schedule sessions.

It also said that over 35 lakh people registered for vaccination in the first hour itself.

According to the reports, nearly 1.33 crore people applied for vaccination on Wednesday.  Those between 18 and 44 can get Covid shots from 1 May (Saturday).

India began vaccinating people in January, starting with healthcare and frontline workers. The second phase included those above 45 and those with other illnesses. Earlier this month, the inoculations were opened to all adults as Covid cases exploded, leaving health services and medical resources severely strained.

Serum Institute’s Covishield and Bharat Biotech’s Covaxin have been used so far. In a few weeks, say officials, Russia’s Sputnik will also be available. The centre has fast-tracked approvals for foreign vaccines.

India’s daily Covid deaths hit a new record today at 3,293 in 24 hours. New cases rose by over 3.6 lakh, the highest in the world.
