Aarogya Setu, India’s COVID-19 contact tracing app, will now let you register for the vaccine. This is possible because of the latest integration between Aarogya Setu and the CoWIN (Covid Vaccine Intelligence Network) app. The latter essentially allows users to get vaccination certificates, information like vaccine drives, and detailed statistics. The integration of the Aarogya Setu app and the CoWIN vaccine was announced via Twitter.

CoWIN for those unversed is a vaccination initiative flagged off by the Indian government back on January 16, 2021. Thence began the first wave of vaccination drive covering health officials, frontline workers, and people above 50 years old.
Coming back to Aarogya Setu App, under the CoWIN tab, there are presently three options concerned with vaccination drive –
- Vaccination Information
- Vaccine Certificate
- Vaccination Dashboard
The Vaccination Information page shows a series of three videos featuring Dr. Randeep Guleria, AIIMS Director. He is explaining questions about the safety, availability, and dose schedule of the vaccine. Users can also view and download a 13-page document file to get in-depth information on FAQs.
The Vaccination Certificate page requires an input of a 14-digit Beneficiary Reference ID from those who are already vaccinated. It also requires the registered mobile number of the user. Through this, one can download a vaccination certificate.
