Things to know about CoWIN app

As the DCGI approved Covishield and Covaxin, India is getting ready for its biggest mass vaccination programme. In this context, the government developed a digital platform CoWIN, Covid Vaccine Intelligence Network. CoWIN app has been launched for tracking the beneficiaries of the COVID vaccine across the country.

The app has five modules for administrator, registration, vaccination, beneficiary acknowledgement, and reports. Beneficiaries have to give their details under the registration module to receive the vaccine.

To register, users can download the CoWIN app from Google Play Store or Apple store. They can use any of the specified photo identity cards like Aadhaar card, Voter ID, driving license, passport etc.

The registration process will have three options like self-registration, individual registration and bulk registration. Other details about the registration process are not provided.

After the completion of the registration process, they will receive an SMS with details like date of vaccination, place and time.

However, the registration process is not yet available as the app is in the pre-product phase. The app will have four modules once it is made available for the common people to download.

The authorities can track the information provided by people under Administrator Module. They will create vaccination sessions and send alerts to the vaccinators and managers will receive alerts accordingly.

The details of the beneficiaries will be verified and their vaccination status will be updated under the Vaccination Module.

Under the Beneficiary Acknowledgement Module, beneficiaries will be sent an SMS after they are given the shots.

Union Health Minister Harsh Vardhan announced that the COVID-19 vaccine will be given free for all frontline warriors. However, as of now, the cost of the vaccine to the general public is not indicated.
