Co-WIN rejects college ID as proof to vaccinate 15-18-year-olds

Varthur, 5/1: The Co-WIN portal is not accepting students’ college IDs as proof for vaccinating 15-18-year-olds, a BBMP vaccination team found at a government PU college in Varthur on Monday.

This was despite the civic body’s announcement that the college ID would be accepted as ID proof for vaccinating the adolescents.


As a result, the civic body has decided to only accept Aadhaar as proof to vaccinate students. “We’ve asked the principal to send only those with Aadhaar cards,” Dr Aditi Lokhande Sangewar, from the BBMP’s mobile vaccination team, told DH.


Dr Sangewar’s team had brought 1,000 Covaxin doses to vaccinate 1,184 first- and second-year PU students at the college.
