  17. I took Astrazenica 2 doses alongwith my Spouse at Melbourne, Australia , having no registration in Indian Cowin app obviously.
    I am afraid , if we can take Booster/ precautionary dose here at Kolkata.
    Already rushed from pillar to post. As a matter of fact, nobody, even in most highly concerned circle, there is no idea as to how this can happen now in India.
    Our immunity level would fall after some time ,as already 5 months has gone after 2 nd dose and not only people like us as international returnees, people around us also will stand vulnerable.
    Indian Health Authy should in no time take up the issue. Regards !

  18. I am just completing 60 by 5th Aug 2022. Second dose date was 2.6.21. completed 9 months. Am I eligible for booster dose.

  19. Is booster dose available for 51 year old who has completed 9 months since 2nd dose.
    COWIN shows NIL slots for 45+
    Though slots available for 18+ there it says not applicable for person

      • Try from Cowin website instead of application it will be successful and you will not get the error message

          • The same error message I am getting in Arogya Setu. As suggested above, I went to the Cowin portal, where I get an error message reading: “Your appointment has been scheduled along with other members. To book a new appointment, please cancel the existing one and try again”. The fact is that I did not do any booking previously nor have I added other family members. The Arogyasetu and the cowin portal first pages tell that the booster dose is not scheduled.

    • Try from Cowin website instead of application it will be successful and you will not get the error message
