New Covishield schedule of 12-16 wks in CoWin
The central government has reconfigured Cowin to reflect a change in Covishield vaccine dose interval of 12-16 weeks. The revised interval is applicable only for the Covishield vaccine. The government has made it clear that there is no change for the Covaxin vaccine timeline that continues to be between 4 and 6 weeks.
As per new directives, the Cowin platform will provide online appointments for the second dose of Covishield after 84 days. The beneficiaries are advised to reschedule their appointments for a later date beyond the 84th day, the Union health ministry said in a statement.
