What is the CoWIN App?
Co-WIN (COVID-19 Vaccine Intelligence Network) is an upgraded version of eVIN (Electronic Vaccine Intelligence Network), and has been made available free on the Play Store. The Health Ministry said that the government will get the vaccine in three stages. In these, all frontline healthcare professionals in the first phase and those associated with emergency services in the second phase will get the vaccine vaccine. State governments are collecting data of these people. After this, in the third phase, those people who are suffering from serious diseases will be vaccinated. For this, a self-registration process will be required through the Co-Win app.
