How to Download Covid-19 Vaccine Certificate via Aarogya Setu App or CoWIN Portal: India is amidst the second wave of Covid-19 and registered over 4 lakh daily cases of coronavirus infection for four consecutive days this month. In a bid to fight this highly infectious disease, the government allowed vaccination for everyone above the age of 18 from May 1. According to the Union Health Ministry, India is now the fastest country in the world to administer 17 crore doses of the Covid-19 vaccine. The data of the ministry shows that a total of 17,01,76,603 vaccine doses have been administered through 24,70,799 sessions so far.
Currently, there are two vaccines that are being administered in India – Covishield, developed by the Serum Institute of India (SII) and Bharat Biotech’s Covaxin.
Once you receive the first dose of your vaccine, the government issues a Vaccination Certificate that confirms a person has been inoculated. This is issued immediately after the person receives the first dose. The certificate carries all the basic details of the beneficiary like name, age, gender, and also all the details of vaccination. Under the vaccination details, one can find details like vaccine name, date of receiving the first dose, next due date, location at which the person got vaccinated, and by whom.
