CoWin-20 Mobile App Soon To Monitor COVID-19 Vaccination Schedule

The main goal of the CoWin-20 app is to track the COVID-19 vaccination program and ensure all the Indian citizens apply for a COVID-19 vaccine shot.

"Every single Indian who needs to be vaccinated will be vaccinated", says Union Health Secretary Rajesh Bhushan. Line-listing of "Prioritized Population Groups for COVID-19 Vaccination" is being prepared, which includes 30 crore people. Among them includes - 1 crore healthcare workers in both government and private sectors, about 2 crore frontline workers such as security personnel and people involved in essential services, about 27 crore Prioritized Age Group people - those above 50 and with co-morbidities.

The CoWin-20 app

Five modules are designed for the registration and tracking of the COVID-19 vaccine in the CoWin-20 app. They are the:
  • Administrator module
  • Registration module
  • Vaccination module
  • Beneficiary acknowledgment module
  • Report module
The aam Janata can register for the COVID-19 vaccine via the registration module. The beneficiary acknowledgment module will send an SMS to the registered mobile number upon registration followed by the administrative set up for the COVID-19 vaccination program that will get into business for delivery and inoculation of the vaccine.

Vaccination sessions would be conducted by administrators of each region followed by maintenance of the record in the administrative module. Further surveys on the health and co-morbidity condition of the beneficiaries would help prioritize and track the data of the app.

Upon successful vaccination, the beneficiary acknowledgment module would issue a QR-based certificate. Finally, the report module will prepare reports on vaccination sessions for the extent of vaccination in an area as well as at the national level.

The app would also send real-time data from the cold-storage facilities - an extension of the Electronic Vaccine Intelligence Network (eVIN) system that stores COVID-19 vaccines.

Pharma companies like Pfizer-BioNTech, Oxford-AstraZeneca through the Serum Institute of India (SII), and indigenous Bharat Biotech have applied for emergency use authorization of COVID-19 vaccine.

Hence, the app awaits its launch sooner to digitally facilitate the smooth monitoring of the entire vaccination process.
