♦ Co-WIN is a cloud-based IT platform that should be able to handle the details of India’s Covid-19 immunization program, including registering beneficiaries, assigning vaccination centers, sending text messages with the names of vaccinators to beneficiaries, Real-time monitoring and storage of bottles.
♦ The Co-WIN platform is owned by the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare and was previously a platform for polio and other important immunization programs across the country.
♦ The same platform has been expanded to distribute the Covid-19 vaccine, and the Ministry of Electronics and IT and the National Informatics Center are dealing with the backend and technical infrastructure for it.
♦ Monitoring and tracking: This app can monitor the vaccination drive and track the listed beneficiaries for vaccination in real time basis.
♦ Therefore, it also helps to deal with proxy vaccination.
♦ Aadhaar enabled: This app will enable the beneficiaries to be effectively identified by using the Aadhaar platform.
