Q: Where is the vaccination drive located?
A: At Taj Lands End, Mumbai: Band Stand, BJ Road, Mount Mary, Bandra West, Mumbai, Maharashtra 400050

Landmark:Next to Fr. Agnel Ashram, Bandstand Promenade

Q: I had registered for the first dose, do I need to re-register for the second dose?
A: Yes, we request you to re-register yourself and your dependents for the second dose

Q: Why do I need to re-register as I had already registered for the first dose

A: As per internal compliance mandate, we had deleted all the previous data. Moreover there will be a few members who might be travelling / not available for the second dose / already took the second dose elsewhere; hence these jabs can be used for others.

Q: Is there parking available at the hotel?
A: Taj will provide dedicated parking at the premises subject to availability.

Q: Do I need to install the Aarogya Setu App? 

A: It is advisable to install Aarogya Setu App however it is not mandatory.

Q: Which vaccine are we getting?
A: Covishield 

Q: Why is Covaxin not being offered?
A: Our hospital partner has secured vaccines from the Serum Institute, which manufactures Covishield and doesn’t manufacture Covaxin.

Q: How long will the entire process take?
A: The total duration, from the time you get to the building until the time you exit, is approximately 1 hour. In case we get an overwhelming response, please expect slight delays.

Q: Who is included in “partner +2”?
A: Family members (partner, parents, kids, siblings etc ) are eligible within the 2 dependents, as are people who live with you, for example roommates/flat mates and house help (maids, drivers, etc.).

Q: I have already taken the first dose, can I take the second dose in this vaccination drive?
A: Yes, if the first dose that you received was Covishield and it has been at least 84 days since your first jab. Your CoWin registration also needs to reflect that your first Covishield jab was completed at least 84 days ago. If you have taken the first dose before new regulation came, CoWIN might show that you are due for the second dose. But, you still need to maintain the 84 days gap between 2 doses. If you come for the vaccination, the CoWIN portal will not permit hospital staff to update the second jab before 84 days.

Q: I was positive and recovered sometime back, when can I take the vaccine?
A: If it’s been 90 days since recovery, then you are eligible to take the vaccine. However it will be dependent upon the on-site doctor’s recommendation after checking your medical history. Please refer to hospital criteria.

Q: How do I get the Beneficiary ID?
A: Once you have used your OTP and registered yourself on CoWin using Govt ID / Aadhaar, you can click on your name and you will find your beneficiary ID on the app.

Q: What is the difference between REF ID and Beneficiary ID?
A: If you register through the CoWin portal you will get the REF ID, if you register through the Aadhaar card, you will get the beneficiary ID. Both are the same.

Q: Do I need to get a Beneficiary ID for myself or all my dependents coming for the vaccination?
A: You need a beneficiary ID for all. You can register up to 4 members using one phone number.

Q: What if someone faints or is not feeling well after the vaccination?
A: A medical emergency room has been set up with a doctor and a nurse to attend to anyone who experiences adverse reactions to the vaccine. In case of emergency, we will have an ambulance stationed at the premises equipped with life support machines.

Q: Do I need to prepare or check anything else before coming for the vaccination?
A: Please refer to Pre/During/Post vaccination information provided earlier in this document.

Q: What if I don’t get Aadhaar for the vaccination, will other Government IDs be considered?
A: You may carry the Govt ID proof that you had used for enrolling on the CoWin portal.

Q: I managed to get my shot, however some of my dependents have yet to receive theirs. If I don’t accompany them on – can they still get the first dose as part of the drive?
A:Yes, they need to mention your name in the form under the first section that says “Referred By”

Q: My father has registered himself using his PAN number and received his first shot. Is updating the Aadhar number mandatory? His beneficiary id is available nevertheless on the system.
A: If you or your dependent have the ID proof as per CoWin portal, then it shall suffice.

Q: What if I took the first jab on another ID like, PAN Card, Driving license etc. Do I need to re-register with Aadhar?

A: No need to re-register, please bring in your ID proof that you had used for first jab when you are coming for the second jab, provided you have completed 84 days from the first jab.
