Hyderabad: The State government on Tuesday has permitted private hospitals to administer Covid vaccines to individuals above 45 years.

Private hospitals, however, must vaccinate only those who have booked a slot through the CoWIN portal and should not entertain vaccinations for onsite registrations or walk-ins.

The private hospitals will have to procure the Covid vaccines on their own, Director of Public Health Dr G Srinivasa Rao on Tuesday said.
