How to Download COVID-19 Vaccine Certificate Online (Using Cowin and Aarogya Setu App)


India is in its third phase of the vaccination drive. Initially, the vaccination process was opened up for doctors, nurses and front-line workers and then for the people above the age of 45 years. And now all the citizens between the age of 18 and 44 can get themselves immunized in the country. So you first have to register yourself on the government's official website called cowin using your aadhar card, pan card, passport or any such identity proof. And then you have to book an appointment to get your vaccine shots so when you get your first dose of vaccine you get a provisional vaccination certificate. When you receive your second dose of vaccine you get a final digital vaccination certificate. So what is this vaccine certificate and why do you need it? 

So imagine you have received both the doses of Covid 19 vaccine but can you prove it that's when this vaccine certificate will help you. It is an official document issued by the government of India that proves you have been vaccinated. It has a 13 digit beneficiary id using which you can see all the details including the name of the vaccine you've received, the person who vaccinated you, the place and the date of the vaccine.  So this vaccination certificate will help you in traveling purposes or maybe at your workplace.
