The next process of Covid-19 vaccination has been launched by the Indian government. Vaccinations are also available to all people over the age of 18. On the websites of the Union Ministry of Health & Family Welfare and the National Health Authority, a user guide to assist people in registering and booking appointments has been posted (NHA).
Here’s a step-by-step guide to getting your elderly family members vaccinated. These measures may also be used for vaccine registration in the next process.
Citizens can register at https://www.cowin.gov.in/home or via the Aarogya Setu app, which integrates with the CoWIN app. Since the CoWIN app is only for administrators, there is no registration option in the Play Store. Vaccination slots near you are restricted, which is proving to be difficult to come by at the moment.
Step-Wise Guide for Covid-19 Vaccine and Slot Booking
#2 Enter your phone number and press the OTP button (One Time Password). Click the verify button after entering the OTP that was sent to your phone number.
#3 Go to the CoWin tab in the Aarogya Setu app and select the Vaccination tab. To continue, press the Proceed button.
#4 A registration page will now appear, on which you must enter the photo ID form, number, and full name. You must also have the person’s gender and age. As photo ID evidence, you can use a driver’s license or an Aadhaar card, for example.
#5 Click the register button if the person you’re registering is a senior citizen. If you’re registering an individual with comorbidities, you must choose yes when the question “Do you have any comorbidities (pre-existing medical conditions)?” is asked. When going to the appointment, people between the ages of 45 and 60 would need to bring a medical certificate. A confirmation message will be sent to the registered mobile number after registration.
#6 The system will view account information after the registration process is completed. One individual may add up to four more people to the mobile number previously entered. You can also register other people by clicking the ‘Add button’ and entering their details.
#7 A column called “Action” will appear in front of the account information for the registered names. You’ll see a calendar icon below it; press it to make an appointment.
#8 You will be guided to the page “Book Appointment for Vaccination.” Enter information such as the state/UT, district, block, and Pincode now. After you’ve entered all of this information, click the “Search” button.
#9 Depending on your place, a list of vaccine clinics will appear. You should choose one and then look at the vaccine dates that are valid at these locations. If you have a range of slots and dates, you can choose one that works best for you. You can also choose dates from the following week and then choose “Book” from the drop-down menu.
#10 The specifics of the booking will be shown on a “Appointment Confirmation” tab. You can either click “Confirm” if the information is right, or “Back” if you want to make adjustments.
#11 In the end, an “Appointment Successful” page will appear showing all the details. You can download and save the confirmation of the vaccination details.
#12 You can log in with your mobile number, enter OTP, and make adjustments by clicking on the edit icon below the ‘Action’ column against registered individuals. If you need to relocate to another location, you can also make adjustments to locate the nearest vaccination center.
