Co-Win: 4-Digit Security Code Mandatory For Online Vaccine Booking From May 8
New Delhi: The Co-Win software through which registration and vaccination slot booking is taking place for the 18+ and 45+ age group will now have a security code.
The Union Health Ministry has taken the step following data-entry error in marking many people who have booked vaccination slots as ‘vaccinated.’
Upon booking vaccination slots on cowin.gov.in website, people will receive a four-digit security code which will have to be produced at the vaccination centre. The code will also be mentioned on the digital certificate, the ministry said.
The ministry has also advised citizens to carry a copy (digital or physical) of their appointment slip or the appointment confirmation SMS so that the security code can be furnished easily.
Here is the checklist for registration on Co-Win:
Co-Win is not a mobile app. Registration can be done through Co-Win website or through the Aarogya Setu app.
- One can register on Co-Win through a mobile number, based on the one-time password.
- During registration, one has to mention the identification number of the photo ID card that he or she will carry during vaccination.
