The second phase of corona vaccination in the country is starting from 1 March. Private hospitals have also been included in this phase, but those who have vaccinated here will have to pay the money. Those who get vaccinated in private hospitals in Gujarat will have to pay 250 rupees. Deputy Chief Minister Nitin Patel has made this announcement. However, he did not say whether this included service charges from private hospitals.
The situation is not clear about the vaccine rate in other states, but in the meantime, the news agency has quoted sources as saying that those who get vaccinated in private hospitals will have to pay 300 to 500 rupees, including service charge. It is being told that the NITI Aayog has proposed this price range, although the final decision will be taken by the Health Ministry.
Covaxin rates will be higher
Bharat Biotech’s Kovaxin and Serum Institute’s Kovyshield are currently being used in the ongoing corona vaccination in the country. However, people are not being given the option to choose the vaccine of their choice. In such cases, those who will find Kovaxin will have to pay a little more price than those of KoviShield. It is being told that the government has purchased KoviShield at Rs 210 per dose and Kovaxin at Rs 290 per dose.
Vaccine will be free in government hospitals
In the phase of vaccination starting from March 1, about 12 thousand government hospitals and primary health centers will be vaccinated free of cost. In this phase, people above 60 years of age will be vaccinated. Along with this, those people between the age of 45 to 60 will also be vaccinated, who are suffering from serious diseases. The central government estimates that around 27 crore people fall into this category.
