The Cowin website has been upgraded from four members to now facilitate six members registration using one mobile number for the beneficiaries.
The Cowin is a platform to register for vaccination, using a mobile number, Aadhaar number or any other identity documents.
“Instead of the existing limit of 4 members, now 6 members can be registered using one mobile number on Co-WIN,” said the Union Health Ministry in a statement.
In continuation of updates on various utility features of Cowin for the beneficiaries, a feature has been introduced to raise an issue in Cowin account through which the beneficiary can revoke its current vaccination status from fully vaccinated to partially vaccinated or unvaccinated status and also can get the vaccination certificate.
The feature enables the vaccine beneficiaries to correct their vaccination status wherein occasional isolated cases, the vaccination certificates are generated due to inadvertent data entry errors by the vaccinator.
Now users are allowed to rectify the mistakes in their vaccination status with the updated function. The much-needed facility has been made available to users after complaints of data entry errors began piling up across many states.
After submitting the online request through raising an issue utility it may take 3-7 days for the response. Such beneficiaries can get their due vaccine dose, maybe at the nearest vaccination centre, as per the existent standard guidelines once the new vaccination status is successfully updated in the system.
