COVID jabs: Online registration in WP

An online registration method to get jabbed against COVID-19 has been introduced, Sports Minister and Digital Technology and Entrepreneur Development State Minister Namal Rajapaksa said.

He said this was done with the objective of streamlining the Covid-19 inoculation drive. The online registration method was introduced on Monday. Accordingly, anyone recommended by the Health authorities as eligible to obtain the vaccine against COVID19 will be able to register themselves at ‘https://vaccine.covid19.gov.lk’ and obtain a date and a time, if they are residents in the Western Province (the Colombo, Kalutara, Gampaha districts).

This online system has been introduced by the Western Province Health Medical Director’s office of the Health Ministry together with the Sri Lanka Information and Communication Technology Agency (ICTA). It aims to prevent problems the people have to face when obtaining vaccine shots against COVID.

Those who have had the first dose of the vaccine in the Western Province can register online for the second dose. The same facility will be extended to other provinces in future.
