Covid-19 vaccine free for 18+ in Karnataka govt hospitalsKarnataka will provide free Covid-19 vaccines in its government health centres to all those above 18 years. But with Karnataka imposing a 14-day lockdown, it could not be ascertained whether the vaccination drive for those above 18 years will start on May 1 as announced by the Centre or it will be postponed.

There are concerns about how people would travel to vaccination centres since movement of any kind, except for essential services, is banned.

Health minister K Sudhakar said, “I urge everyone to start registering on CoWIN from April 28. We may give a new date or may allow movement of people for vaccination considering it as an essential.”

But he also hinted at a possible delay since the government has yet to place a procurement order with the Serum Institute of India.
