How to download Covid-19 vaccine certificate from Co-WIN, Aarogya Setu app
India on Wednesday entered the 116th day of vaccination drive against the deadly coronavirus disease where more than 17.52 crore people have been administered the drug. Millions have lined up outside the government and private hospitals from January this year to get their vaccine doses, termed as a key protection against fighting the virus.
The process requires individuals to register to receive a Covid-19 vaccine jab through the Co-WIN app of the Centre. The online portal shows the government and private hospital facilities under the desired PIN code and under districts.
The people can also select the category to filter from options of selecting a slot under age group, paid and free facility and choice of vaccine between Covaxin and Covishield.
Once an individual receives his/her first dose of the shot, the government issues a vaccination certificate which carries all the basic details - like name, age, gender - and also all the details of vaccination like vaccine name and date of receiving the first dose.
People who have taken their doses of Covid-19 vaccination can download their certificate both from the Co-Win portal as well as from the Aarogya Setu app.
