New Delhi:

Coronavirus booster shots will be available to all adults from Sunday at private vaccination centres, the government announced on Friday.

The order means that unlike the booster shots announced for healthcare workers, frontline staff and those above 60, the third jab will not be free for most adults.

“Ongoing free vaccination programme through government vaccination centres for first and second dose as well as Precaution Dose to Healthcare Workers, Frontline Workers and 60+ population would continue and would be accelerated,” a government statement said.

About 96 per cent of all 15+ population in the country have received at least one COVID-19 vaccine dose while about 83 per cent of 15+ population has received both the doses, it added.
