Co-WIN introduces features on its CO-WIN app

The existing limit of 4 members is now gone, and 6 members can be registered using a mobile number on Co-WIN. The Ministry of Health and Family Welfare has introduced various features on its CO-WIN application, which has been updated by the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare.

Another feature that was introduced is that any beneficiary can revoke its current vaccination status from fully vaccinated to partially vaccineted or unvaccinated status to unvaccinated status, as well as partially vaccinated to unvaccinated status.

The vaccination status can be corrected by the beneficiaries, where in occasionally isolated cases vaccine certificates are generated due to inadvertent data entry errors by the vaccinator in updation of beneficiaries' vaccination data.

The changes may take 3 -- 7 days to reflect after submitting the online request through raising an issue utility. As per the existent standard guidelines, such beneficiaries can get their due vaccine dose, and should be at the nearest vaccine centre once their vaccination status is updated in the system.

India's positivity rate has dropped to 21.48 per cent, with over 57,290 tests conducted in a day, according to the health bulletin. The number of active cases is now 68,730.

As the world economy continues to be affected by the Pandemic, Serum Institute of India's chief executive officer Adar Poonawalla said on Tuesday that his company is ready to support global vaccine equity through programmes such as COVAX to ensure larger distribution of vaccines, particularly to developing countries, especially in countries that have been affected by the COVID 19 pandemic.
