The government has rolled out a feature to update vaccination status on the Aarogya Setu App using the mobile number used for registration on the CoWIN portal. Displaying the vaccination status of a person on the home screen of the app would travel and access to various premises easy, the government said.

ET had reported last month that the government is working on a feature where a blue tick will appear against their names once people take one dose of the vaccine. If they have taken both the doses, then two blue ticks will be displayed.

The government said that those who are fully vaccinated will get a blue shield on the home page of Aarogya Setu app with double blue ticks on the Aarogya Setu logo 14 days after the second dose. This will be done after verification of vaccination status from the CoWIN portal.

Those who have got a single dose will get a single blue border with vaccination status on their home screen along with Aarogya Setu logo with a single tick. With the second dose, the home screen will have a double border and Aarogya Setu logo will have double tick. And 14 days after the second dose, Aarogya Setu will have a blue shield.

"All Aarogya Setu users will get the option to 'Update the Vaccination Status' if they have not taken the revised self-assessment. On taking the self-assessment on Aarogya Setu, those users who have taken at least one dose of COVID19 Vaccine will get the tab of 'partially vaccination/vaccinated (unverified)' on the home screen of Aarogya Setu. This is based on the declaration of vaccination status given by the user during the self-assessment. The unverified status becomes verified after an OTP based check from the CoWIN backend."

A functionality has also been included to update vaccination status of those who have registered on CoWIN with another number since CoWIN allows one registered users to register upto 4 people for Vaccination. "The Vaccination status for such users on Aarogya Setu will be updated by checking the Vaccination status through the mobile number which is registered on CoWIN."
