Sanawad (Khargone district, Madhya Pradesh): The people above 18 years of age are facing challenge to register themselves for vaccination against Covid-19. They wait for hours for the website to open but don’t come to know when the website opens and closes.

Software developer Anusha Gaur said her registration was done on Cowin website on May 10. Till May 15, she tried to search the slot through the pin code of Sanawad but no centre was shown for Sanawad on the site.

Anusha then contacted Cowin’s helpline number but did not receive satisfactory response. She tried for slot booking on May 16 from 10 am to 10.30 pm but was unable to do so.

The young businessman Hakimuddin Bohra dealing in mobile phones, student Johratul Mazd Bohra, Fatema Badshah and homemaker Bilkis Badshah had similar experiences. Despite persistent efforts for registration, they couldn’t succeed.

The youths have demanded to open a vaccination booking centre in Sanawad so that people may go there with Aadhaar card and get registered without hassle.
