Why COVID-19 vaccines will not be available at chemists and pharmacies

New Delhi, Apr 21: While the government has allowed sale of COVID-19 vaccines in the open market from May 1, it would however not be available at chemists and pharmacies.

The COVID-19 vaccine will be administered only at hospitals and approved vaccination centres. This is because the adverse events following immunisation will be recorded on Co-Win and monitored.

Moreover the vaccines are allowed under emergency use and hence cannot be sold by chemists.

Covishield vaccine price in open market: Rs 400 per dose for state govts, Rs 600 for private hospitals

On Monday the government announced that all persons above 18 years of age will be eligible to get COVID-19 vaccine doses from May 1, 2021. The decision was taken at a high-level review meeting chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
