How much does it cost to get vaccinated against COVID-19 in India? Find out here

The Health Ministry of India has announced the price of COVID-19 vaccinations in private and government hospitals.

The price of the vaccine in private hospitals, including a 100 Rupees service charge, Rs 250. At government centers, it is administered for free.

“Service charges were intimated during a virtual meeting and training session on Co-Win 2.0. The meeting, held on February 26, was chaired by CEO National Health Authority and Union Health Secretary,” Maharashtra Health Secretary Dr. Pradeep Vyas was quoted as saying by The Indian Express.

These prices will come into effect from March 1st onwards.

Vyas said that it was informed that all the private hospitals acting as COVID-19 vaccination centers can recover a service charge subject to a ceiling of Rs 100 per person per dose. “These hospitals will also charge Rs 150 as the cost of a per dose of COVID-19 vaccine. This will take the total ceiling amount of each corona vaccine shot to Rs 250 per person,” he said, reports the Financial Express.

This move comes as India gears up to vaccinate people between the ages of 45 to 60.
