Government announces ‘CO-WIN’ mobile app for COVID-19 vaccine delivery | News Update :- The central government has introduced a new digital platform called 'CO-WIN' for COVID-19 vaccine delivery. There will be a new mobile app as well with the same name that will allow people to register for the vaccine.
The platform will be used for recording vaccine data and will form a database of healthcare workers too. All COVID-19 related data necessary for the delivery of the vaccine is presently being uploaded on the CO-WIN platform.
The app will have separate modules for administrator, registration, vaccination, beneficiary acknowledgement and reports. Once people start to register for the app, the platform will upload bulk data on co-morbidity provided by local authorities.
The CO-WIN. app is yet to be available for smartphone users and it is expected that it will be publicly available soon. The different modules of the platform cater to the entire process of COVID-19 vaccination starting from registration to verification.
In a significant development, the Union Health Ministry has developed a mobile application named Co-WIN which will help the authorities in real-time monitoring of COVID-19 vaccine delivery. The app will also be used to record data and help people register themselves for vaccination.
Addressing a press conference on Tuesday, Health Secretary Rajesh Bhushan said Co-WIN will play an important role in monitoring the entire vaccination process.
