The booster dose will be applied only after 9 months of taking the distance dose of the corona vaccine. A person who has completed 9 months can get registered for a booster dose online.

Who is the booster dose for?

In India, people 18 years of age and above can take a booster dose. You can do a booster dose by visiting any private centre. But the booster dose will be applied only after 9 months of the second dose. Earlier, only people 60 years of age and above are being given booster doses.

A booster dose is very important for everyone to avoid the corona epidemic. By the way, Covaxin and Covishield are present in booster doses. According to experts, the booster dose of Covaxin or Kovishield is very effective to protect against Covid 19.

How to register

You can register for the booster dose both online and offline. You can also get a booster shot by visiting the vaccination centre directly. According to experts, if an elderly person has any kind of disease, then definitely consult a doctor before taking a booster dose.

Keep these things in mind before taking a booster dose

  • Before taking the third dose of the corona vaccine, follow the covid protocol. Wear a mask, wash your hands frequently and keep your distance from people.
  • Before taking the booster dose, give rest to the body and get enough sleep. Due to lack of sleep, the immunity of the body becomes weak.

  • Make sure to eat a healthy diet before taking a booster dose. The immunity of the body remains boosted by consuming nutritious food.

During the rising case of Covid, follow the Covid rule as well as apply the vaccine. With this, we can all be saved from this pandemic.
