On WhatsApp, how can I receive a COVID-19 vaccination certificate?
Step 1: Open WhatsApp and send a “Hello” message to +91 9013151515. You can save this number as “Corona Helpdesk bot” if you don’t already have it.
Step 2: After you send a message, the bot will present you with a list of COVID-19-related topics. In the second line of the list, you’ll see “Download Certificate.” Simply enter “2” and send.
Step 3: The bot will display three alternatives again, and all you have to do now is type and send “3.” You can download the vaccine certificate using the third option.
Step 4: An OTP will be issued to your phone number, which you must enter on the conversation.
Note: If your WhatsApp number is different from the one you used to register for CoWin, you will not receive an OTP. The certificate must then be downloaded from the Arogya Setup app.
Step 5: After entering the OTP, the bot will show you the names of people who have registered on the CoWIN website with the same number.
Step 6: Now type the user’s phone number whose vaccination certificate you’d like to download. The vaccine certificate will then be sent to you over WhatsApp in PDF format.
