  • While the CoWin portal is currently available, it has no self-registration option as of now.
  • There will be no on-the-spot registration for the COVID-19 vaccination, and only names enlisted on the CoWin app will be allowed to receive the vaccination at designated Government centres.
  • CoWin app will disburse real-time information on the vaccine stock, storage temperature and individual status of the beneficiaries and will also provide details on helplines to address queries.
