Get Your COVID Vaccine

While we are a marketing channel, we’ve decided to take a small break from the regular content this week. All blogs this week are here to help you with COVID resources & ways to manage life & health in this situation.

Here’s the first of the lot — How to get vaccinated

The government of India announced last month that vaccination slots would be open to all citizens above the age of 18 starting May 1st.

Yes, as promised, the opportunity was made available to us. That being said, most people are finding it a tumultuous task to book their vaccine slot. So much so that the effort has led a lot of people to give up on the process.

So here’s an article that can help you with the process. Try this out, book your slot & get vaccinated. Here’s how

Step 1:

Head to the COWIN website & start with registration. Here’s a link to the website.

Head over & click on Register yourself option on the right corner of the screen.

Step 2:
Type in your mobile number & process toward verification. You will receive an OTP on your phone. Once you key in the OTP, hit ENTER & your verification is done!

Step 3:

Now that you’re registered on the platform, the next thing you need to do is upload your identity proof. The application provides you a series of options for your Photo ID from Aadhaar cards, Govt IDs, Drivers Licenses & so on.
