India’s leading digital financial services platform Paytm launched Covid-19 Vaccine Finder on its Mini App store. The platform helps citizens to check the availability of vaccination slots for a specific date by individually entering different PIN codes or district details along with age group (18+ or 45+).
In case the slots are saturated for the near future, users can select the option for real-time alerts from Paytm once any slot is free. The automated process reduces the hassle and ordeal of refreshing the platform for new slots repeatedly.
The data is sourced on a real-time basis from the CoWIN API where a slot can be booked to take vaccination.
India is fighting a surge in Covid-19 cases in the last one month. The cumulative number of Covid-19 vaccine doses administered in the country stands at 16.71 crore as of May 7.
