After that, a user can update their information. They will be able to get an error-free certificate after checking the details.

However, the certificate can only be changed once.

CoWin vaccination certificates are used at the time of travel and facilitate access to several other premises.

Immunization status

Previously, the government also allowed vaccinated people to update their status voluntarily on the Aarogya Setu app through a self-assessment process.

Those who received a single dose of the vaccine will get a single blue border with the vaccination status on their home screen as well as the Aarogya Setu logo with a single check mark.

A “blue shield” with a double check mark will appear on the app for those who are fully vaccinated, after 14 days of the second dose. This double check will appear after checking the vaccination status from the CoWin portal.

Vaccination status can be updated via the mobile number used for CoWin registration.
