As soon as you complete all these steps, you will receive a message from the CoWin application. And at the time of appointment, you will have to carry an appointment slip and photo identification proof, which you will use at the time of registration for vaccination.

Documents required for the vaccination

As it is a significant problem for the government to ensure that everyone between 18-45 and overcome this problem, the government introduced this CoWIN app. Therefore, you will have to provide your actual documents for identification.

So here I am providing the list of required documents from which you need to take anyone of them as photo identification proof:

  1. Aadhaar card.
  2. Driving license.
  3. Pan card.
  4. Passport.
  5. Voter id card.
  6. Pension document.
  7. Passbooks issued by bank or post office.
  8. Official identity cards issued to MPs/MLAs/MLCs.
  9. Service identity card, which is issued for the employees by central/ state government/ companies.
  10. Health insurance smart card issued under the scheme of the ministry of labor.
  11. Mgnrega job card, which is also known as the Mahatma Gandhi national rural employment guarantee act.

What to do if OTP does not come from the CoWIN app?

This is also a significant problem while you will be registering yourself for the covid-19 vaccination. Because some of the time, due to the technical issues over the CoWIN application, the OTP can not come to verify the phone number.

In this situation, You need to go on the website, Umang and Aarogya Setu App and do all the similar steps to tell you previously for the “steps to get registered yourself for the covid-19 vaccination”.

What to do when you were not able to go for Vaccination at the scheduled time?

This problem is huge among those who will skip their appointment date for vaccination through this CoWIN app. But you don’t need to be panic because this CoWIN application gives a facility to reschedule your appointment date and time. After this, you need to go to the covid-19 vaccination center at that rescheduled time.

Final Words

Following this process, you can easily register in the CoWIN app for the vaccination. Cowin app provides a simple platform where you make an appointment to receive the first dose of the Covid vaccine at your nearest vaccination center. But there is no guarantee that you get an appointment for vaccination on the first try. Sometimes, it does not work and does not send the OTP.

In this situation, You can get an appointment for Vaccination through Aarogya Setu App or Umang App. the process all almost the same, but you have to follow the long process to schedule your appointment for Covid vaccination.

When you go to the Covid Vaccination center to get vaccine, you must carry some required things such as Appointment SMS and any Id proof.
