Got my third dose of COVID-19 vaccination
Two days ago, got my booster dose of Covaxin at the Apollo Medical Centre, T.Nagar, Chennai for INR 390. It was easy and thankfully, had no troublesome side effects. Though I had gotten (natural) infected with COVID19 and recovered during the January (third) wave, I wanted to get this done when there is little demand.
I booked a slot in the Cowin portal. I was in and out of the clinic in ten minutes, including the five minutes post-injection recommended wait.
In India, for those who are above 60 years of age, booster doses are available for free from Government centres. For those in the age bracket of 18 to 60 years, prevention dose (booster) of the same vaccine as in the first two doses are available only from private clinics.
