The Ministry of Health and Family Welfare released new guidelines for the integration of the Indian vaccination portal CoWIN with third-party applications.

This means that developers can include the CoWIN API in their own apps, providing an in-app portal to get registered for the vaccine, making it similar to what is currently available to users of the Aarogya Setu app.

As of now, third-party applications were only allowed to show vaccine status and whether there are any open slots available in a selected region.

The new guidelines issued by the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare will allow more integration and hence, bring more convenience to people.

The Ministry tweeted out guidelines for the integration of CoWIN with third-party applications.

According to the guidelines, these third-party applications can be offered directly to customers (B2C) or to private vaccination centres (B2B) for the following functionalities-

  • Discover vaccination centres and related information.
  • Schedule appointments.
  • Manage vaccination workflow.
  • Generate/Download certificates.
  • Report any adverse effects post-vaccination as per AEFI guidelines.
