Booster shots are available for frontline workers and those above 60 who have comorbidities. The vaccine will be available 9months after the previous (second) dose.

My question is - can one just walk in and get the dose or is there any appointment or other process to be followed?

You can schedule the appointment on cowin portal or if you walk in, the vaccination centre will use cowin portal/app to update the beneficiary details.

Happy to report that she got her booster dose today. Hope they cover all the doctors and senior citizens soon. Really don't understand why it took them this long to begin. But at least it has started, so hope there is not going to be any shortage now and it ramps up quick.

Cowin site is now telling me when I can get my third jab. I didn't check it I can pre-schedule it before that date. I am wondering, if there will be a rush, or if it will be easily available. Second-jab seems very (too much!) easy to get now!

(Actually, once past the date when you are allowed to get it, yes, you can walk in.)

My parents got their booster dose today. Booked appointment through Cowin and it showed Dec 21 as the date for their booster dose!

No crowds, was a breeze.

16 Year Old here.

Took the vaccine on the 5th. Initially had booked an appointment through COWIN for the 7th but then got to know that the PMC centre near my house was doing walk-ins, so went ahead and took it there.

Listing any issues faced by me and my friends

Myself (16M), SR(16F), AT(15M), SDM(16M): Only the arm pained for a day or two.
AN (16F) & KA (16F): Got running fever for 2 days and the arm pained for the same number of days. KA (a bit medically sensitive) had to get admitted to the hospital for precautionary purposes.

I had the opportunity to get a free booster dose because of my profession, while I was in Germany last month. Since I have had two Covishield doses, the doctor recommended that I get a Moderna booster dose, to which I happily agreed.

Even though this was a free vaccination booster drive organised by the German Red Cross, all recipients were talked through the possible side-effects at some length. I was quite impressed by the emphasis on informed consent.

Also, my two Covishield doses were manually entered into the EU Green Pass system as AstraZeneca shots by the nurse on duty. This administrative flexibility was another pleasant surprise.

The nurse also took down details of the side effects I experienced after my Covishield doses; she said that their health authority wanted to collect as much data as possible.

Side effects after this third dose were minimal. Arm pain at the injection site for a few days, and a little bit of breathlessness the day after getting the shot.

Booster is available for 45+ in Tata Organization. One of my relatives working with them in Delhi got his booster 2 days ago along with his whole office.

Thanks for this information. Didn't know corporates have been allowed to buy and administer boosters to employees regardless of age or comorbidity status

Immediately shot off an email to our HRD.

Got an automated sms informing me of my date of eligibility for third shot, which is in a few days.

The Cowin portal and system seems to be working well.
