COVID-19 Vaccine Tracker: So, the government has announced that everyone between the age group 18 years can get their vaccines. That indeed is a relief when the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic is surging in the country and infecting more than three lakh people every day. The process of registration for COVID-19 vaccines is very simple. One can simply register from the CoWIN portal at cowin.gov.in. But getting a vaccination slot is very difficult and that is not relieving at all!
In order to help the people with their booking of the vaccine slot, several developers have introduced real-time trackers as per a report by bgr.in. These real time trackers have been introduced to send an alert when a vaccine slot in the nearby area is available. However, people must remember the fact that these trackers only will send notification in case there is a vaccination slot available, for registration, one still has to login and register from the CoWIN portal.
Some of the COVID-19 vaccine trackers that can send alert in case of availability of a COVID-19 vaccination slot are as follows:
COVID-19 Vaccine Tracker for India – This has been developed by Amit Agarwal. He has built an open-source vaccine tracker. This open-source vaccine tracker monitors the availability of vaccination slots and once slots are available, it sends email alerts.
Under45.in – The website has been developed by Berty Thomas. It helps the people aged between 18 and 44 years to locate the available vaccination slots in the nearby areas. One can login to the website at under45.in. Then one has to enter the state and district following which one can see the available slots for the COVID-19 vaccines. As suggested in its name, this website does not provide any information for those who are 45 years and above.
Getjab.in – Those above 45 years may be disappointed to find out that under45.in is meant for only those between the age group 18 and 44 years but there is no reason to worry at all for those who are 45 years and above. ISB alumni Shyam Sunder and friends have developed this website and the website send alerts and notifications to all those who have signed up for notification. In order to sign up to receive the alerts, one has to login to the getjab.in website.
One can register oneself in order to get alerts from this website by logging in to findslot.in. It uses CoWIN open API to allow users to search by their city or PIN code to find the nearest booking for a COVID-19 vaccine.
