    After Prime Minister Narendra Modi took the Covaxin jab, the next phase of Covid-19 vaccine registration and walk-ins are now open for senior citizens. The Centre said that over 25 lakh people registered for vaccination on the CoWin portal on the first day. Elderly people above the age of 60 years can register themselves. Co-WIN Covid-19 vaccine registration opened on March 01, 2021, and remains open from 9 AM till 3 PM every day. The Vaccination drive is now open for those above the age of 18 years and above.

    What documents will you need for COVID Vaccination?

    When you are going for COVID-19 vaccination, you need to carry your Electoral Photo Identity Card (EPIC) or Aadhaar Card for Photo Id proof. You can also carry the specific Photo ID card that you used at the time of online registration.

    Are there any Side-effects of the Coronavirus/COVID Vaccine?

    Some of the most common side effects that have been reported are mild fever, soreness at the site of the injection, headache, chills, fatigue, and muscle aches. The symptoms do not last too long and are a sign that your immune system is responding well to the vaccine.

    If you have got a Covishield or Covaxin shot, the companies have mentioned these possible adverse effects on their websites. Here is a list of possible side-effects that you need to be aware of:

    Covaxin Side-effects

    The mild side-effects of the drug include pain and swelling on the injection site, redness, itching, stiffness. Some other symptoms include weakness in body ache, injection arm, fever, headache, weakness, malaise, vomiting, rashes, and nausea.

    Side-effects of Covishield

    Covishield’s common side-effects include pain, warmth, and swelling, tenderness, itching, and bruising on the arm where the injection shot was taken. Some people can also experience a general feeling of being unwell, tiredness, chills, headache, joint pain, nausea, or muscle ache, a small lump, fever, vomiting, flu-like symptoms, such as sore throat, high temperature, cough, runny nose, and chills.

    Why should you consider health insurance for Coronavirus despite the vaccine?

    Coronavirus cases started to slow down but now with the new variant coming in, the cases have started to soar up. The new COVID variant poses severe threats and early pneumonia symptoms, therefore it’s important to secure the best health treatment with an adequate coronavirus insurance policy. You can consider buying Corona Kavach and Corona Rakshak health plan and any other specific health plan for COVID-19 listed on our site.

    Nowadays most of the health insurance companies in India provide coverage for Coronavirus hospitalization expenses. The best part is that these COVID mediclaim policies cover the cost of ventilators, PPE kits, masks, gloves,, and other consumable items that may not be covered in a normal health insurance policy.

    Check out various COVID policies on our site and secure your family from vaccination side effects also. As most of the health plans would cover the same.
