Vaccines are finally available to all individuals above 18 years of age in India. Currently, two vaccines are being given out in India- the Covaxin by Bharat Biotech and the Covishield by Serum Institute of India. One has to register in order to get the vaccine. You can register for the COVID-19 vaccination on Arogya Setu App or CoWIN app/website or Umang App. In this article, we will talk about the vaccination certificate which is being issued by the government via the CoWIN app/website.
What is the CoWIN Vaccination Certificate?
The CoWIN Vaccination Certificate is being issued to everyone who has taken their first dose. It is to confirm that the first dose of either of the two vaccines has been administered. It is important to take a second dose of the same vaccine. The CoWIN certificate contains some basic and vital information about the individual.
This includes their name, gender, age, vaccine name, the date on which the first dose had been administered, the due date for the next dose, the person who administered the vaccine as well as the location where you have taken the vaccine. At the time of getting the first dosage, you must mention if you have any comorbidities so that the necessary precautions can be taken.
Why is Getting the Cowin Certificate Important?
You must obtain your CoWIN certificate after you have taken your first dose. Not only do you have to show it to get your second dose, but it also contains crucial information about you and your vaccination. Most importantly, you can use it to remember when you need to get your second dose.
