What do we understand by COWIN:
The complete form of Cowin is covid Vaccine Intelligence work. It was initiated by the central government in January when the vaccination drive against Covid-19 began in the country.
It is a website for beneficiaries and officials associated with the vaccination process; there is a different mobile application.
The online e- portal allows beneficiaries to book the vaccination slot. They can choose a day and time slot as per their preference. The beneficiaries can register at the website with their phone number. They will then receive an OTP to be entered in the required field. The person will then be asked to enter their Aadhar details and can move forward to book their vaccination slot.
In cowin, you can add up to four family members in their profile and book slots for them as well.
After successful vaccination, they can also download their certificate from the portal. The upgrade this, Indians planning to travel abroad, offers to link their passport with covid-19 vaccine certificate.
