Fixation of Maximum Price per Dose for Covid19 Vaccination

The Centre on Tuesday instructed private vaccination centers to not charge more than Rs. 780 for Covishield, Rs. 1,410 for Covaxin and Rs. 1,145 for Sputnik V jabs. The Centre said that private hospitals can charge up to Rs. 150 on service charges and the state governments will monitor the prices being charged.

The Centre also said that steps are being taken to put the required validations by the CoWIN portal to make sure that prices declared by several private Covid-19 vaccination centres do not exceed that mandated by the government.

In its order, the Centre also highlighted that the prices declared by private Covid-19 vaccination centres need to be reset to the maximum value instructed by the government. β€œThe Co-WIN system will also reset the prices declared by private CVCs to the maximum value indicated, for respective vaccines, wherever the price declared by a CVC exceeds the maximum value,” the order said.

The government asked the state governments to take strict action against private CVCs wherever instances of over-charging arise.
