Covid Vaccine Appointment : COVID-19 vaccination is now available for all those who are eighteen years of age and above in India starting on May 1, 2021. To avail themselves of all of the benefits offered, all potential customers must mandatorily register on the CoWin portal and book their slots.
App users who are eligible may also use Aarogya Setu to gain access to the CoWin portal. While this sounds simple, it appears that patients aged 18 to 45 have had difficulty getting appointments for their COVID vaccination. As appointments seem to book very quickly, patients under the age of 18 and 45 find it difficult to get a COVID vaccination appointment. Despite being nearly a month after the incident, it is still difficult to find a vaccine slot on the CoWin portal.
Well, how do you schedule a vaccination against COVID-19 for an 18+ adult if you have to spend hours looking on the CoWin portal to schedule it? Here’s a clever solution to a common problem: India’s tech-savvy youth has figured out a couple of simple tricks and tips to help people book an appointment for COVID-19 vaccination on the CoWin portal.
Here are 6 simple tips to help you book a coval vaccine appointment.
1. Under45.in, which is a Chennai-based website, has been developed by a man in that city. This extension enables you to see a list of Telegram channels that will keep you up to date on current and future vaccine slots, depending on your location. As long as a user submits their email address, signs up for Telegram, and follows the district-specific channel, they will be all set.
2. GetJab.in: The platform sends alerts when additional slots become available through email.
3. In order to help their customers get vaccinated, Paytm integrated a vaccine finder into their mobile application. This helps customers discover new vaccines as soon as a vaccination slot becomes available.
4. When launched by HealthifyMe, the platform was called VaccinateMe. The CoWIN API is used to provide users with the vaccination slots that are available. The portal is linked to relevant filters that allow users to adjust the search to match their needs, which may include things like pin code, district, and age choice as well as vaccine type.
5. The 5th point mentioned my Government’s Corona Helpdesk bot which is also a resource for vaccination clinics. However, it does not send alerts when there are vaccines available for vaccination.
A new WhatsApp bot called ‘Few youth have begun a WhatsApp bot to track vaccine availability’ was created. By using the bot, the user can find out if there are any available slots for any PIN code or district.
How does this system work?
1. It is possible to send a simple “Hi” in WhatsApp to the number 7903252271.
2. A welcome message will be followed by a menu that allows the user to select an age group. Selecting the correct option is available to the users.
3. Afterward, they will be offered the option to search slots based on their Pincode or their district.
4. Once the user replies with their available slots, the bot will provide all the available slots.
5. In the event that slots are unavailable, users can select an auto-notification alert and the bot will check for additional slots on their behalf and immediately send the message in the event of new slots becoming available.
Here are a few additional suggestions.
While you’re doing that, keep checking and refreshing the CoWin portal. One of the best times to locate a vaccination slot is between the hours of 6 p.m. and 11 p.m. Most players don’t find slots right away. Players who are lucky enough to find one should immediately book the slot, as slots fill up quickly.
Anyone willing to travel to receive a vaccination jab is welcome to do so. The quickest way to locate a vaccination centre in your Pincode or district is to find nearby districts with vaccination centres and book a slot in advance.
