How to get a vaccination certificate in India?
This may sound funny but the truth is COVID-19 is not just a word it’s an emotion. Yes, it is already more than 2 and a half years that the planet earth has been battling the deadly virus called the corona. Still, the battle of this virus war doesn’t come to an end and it keeps extending with the change in the virus variants.
We have never imagined such a situation will arise, that the whole world needs to stop doing the routine and stay inside the houses just because of a virus is an imaginary situation for all of us.
But still, it all happened and kept continuing and the spread of the virus went beyond the control at the beginning of 2020. COVID-19 is transmitted through the air so it spread vigorously from one to another during the early stage.
And so many of us lost our dear ones in this battle as we failed to control the spread and we don’t have enough immune power to survive the virus attack in our body.
As it may start creating new antibodies which will start destructing most of the body parts in humans and lead us to death.
To keep everything under control and get rid of this situation as soon as possible, all the countries started developing a vaccine and most of the developed countries succeeded in a very short span to bring everything under control.
Even though both the vaccines are approved by many scientists and WHO, we have our human nature on doubting whether the vaccines may cause severe side effects or it may cause death.
This stopped most of the people from getting the vaccine at the beginning in INDIA. Later on, knowing the statics that the percentage of the survivor increased after vaccination builds trust in all the individuals and all started getting their vaccines.
To take a count on this and to know the count of the dose Indian government made this vaccine certificate a mandatory one.
There is a total of 2 dosages for both the vaccinations and if we get vaccinated we can easily download the certificate online from the COWIN portal and AROGYA SETHU app maintained by the Government of India.
