  • There is no Co-WIN app for self-registration and booking an appointment for the vaccine. The App on Play Store is for administrators only.
  • The registration and booking for an appointment for the Covid-19 vaccination are to be done through the Co-WIN portal: http://cowin.gov.in.
  • Four people can be added using one mobile number.
  • Citizens can register and book an appointment for vaccination, anytime and anywhere, using the Co-WIN 2.0 portal or through other IT (information technology) applications such as Arogya Setu, etc.
  • Once you book your appointment for vaccination, you will receive an SMS with the appointment details on your mobile number. The confirmation details of the booking too should be saved.
  • Rescheduling of appointment can be done through the Co-Win portal, but it has to be done before the vaccination appointment day.
  • Rescheduling can also be done to a vaccination centre in another city if one has to travel.
  • Those who have successfully taken the first dose after registration will get their next appointment automatically scheduled on the 29th day.
  • Till the time of vaccination, all the records of registration and appointment can be edited/deleted by the person making the registration.
