In order to effectively help people register and deliver the vaccine, the government has announced a new app called ‘CO-WIN’. To get COVID-19 vaccine in India, people will have to register on the app, upload necessary documents and get necessary details.
Having said that the CO-WIN app faced glitches and couldn’t deliver the efficiency required of the digital platform for the second consecutive day. Some states faced minor glitches on Monday that were quickly fixed, but most struggled to get going in the face of data lag, erroneous communication or total system failure. States like Punjab and Haryana have eased the rule that requires mandatory use of the CO-WIN app for vaccine delivery.
The health departments are now allowed to go ahead with the vaccination drive without pre-registering recipients provided the data of recipients is uploaded manually later.
