The second phase of India’s vaccination drive began with Covid-19 vaccination for people over the age of 18 years, despite the limited availability of units across the world. Although the drive is still going strong, slots are hard to come by, particularly for those over the age of 18 and under the age of 45.
The only way to get vaccinated is to register and schedule an appointment via the government’s official CoWin portal. Apart from the low availability of slots, CoWin has no way of informing users when a slot becomes available in their location.
So, if you don’t want to keep checking the website for slot availability, what are your options? The solution is available on a few new websites.
These websites basically serve as a notification system for those who have signed up for the vaccine and are waiting for a slot in their region. Aside from that, some display information on vaccine centres as well as the type of vaccine available in the region, such as Covaxin or Covishield.
Please keep in mind that these websites cannot be used to schedule a Covid-19 vaccine appointment. Users can only do so through the CoWin portal. They will simply be informed of vaccine availability through these websites, allowing them to schedule an appointment in advance.
- VaccinateMe.in: The new website, created by health-tech startup HealthifyMe, offers answers to a variety of questions. This involves the availability of vaccine slots for the 18+ and 45+ age groups, as well as the type of vaccine available. Users can check for information on the website by entering their district or pin code. After that, VaccinateMe.in allows you to filter the results by age group (18+ or 45+), vaccine form (Covishield or Covaxin), and price (Free or Paid). In terms of vaccine availability, the website displays the date on which a slot is open as well as the total number of slots available on that day.
- Getjab. in: Getjab. in is a single-page website created by four friends, each from a different field of work. It is possibly the first of its kind in India. The website’s sole purpose is to inform you when a slot for the Covid-19 vaccine becomes available in your region. It functions in a straightforward manner. The website, dubbed CoWin slot notifier, asks for your name, district in India, and email address in order to give you an email when Covid-19 vaccination slots become available in your area. There is an opportunity to register your phone number, as the website intends to add SMS notification features soon. Getjab.in users will only receive an email from the website once vaccination slots are available in their region. No confirmation or other emails are sent by the website after registration. It guarantees that the information will not be shared or sold.
