How to book Covid-19 vaccine in India

Booking appointments online for vaccination of Covid-19 in India is very easy. The bookings are followed on the Government's official website (Cowin) or in the mobile app (Arogya Setu). Due to heavy traffic on site and website, sometimes it is difficult to book an appointment, in this situation you should wait and check after some time.

To book a slot, follow the steps below:

Note: I suggest choosing the website to book a slot as in the mobile app there are some lags and load which might be the reason for missing slots due to overbookings.

4. Register members

You can register for a max of 4 members from one mobile number. I suggest that only a family member's booking should be made from your number because the mobile number would be mandatory for accessing your record of vaccinations at last after vaccination.
