Vaccination: CoWIN app troubles on day one

Officials involved in the Covid-19 vaccination drive on Saturday faced difficulties in operating the Covid Vaccine Intelligence Network (CoWIN) application, developed by the Centre to monitor and track the vaccination.

In Delhi, CoWin was not working at various sites, people aware of the matter told ET Magazine. The details of the beneficiaries could not be uploaded, they said. A private healthcare provider in Delhi said the app faced issues in the beginning of the vaccination programme, but it was working after some time. The health ministry confirmed that there was a delay in uploading of beneficiaries at some session sites. “The system performance and the speed improved and is being further optimised,” Manohar Agnani, additional secretary, health ministry, said on Saturday.

Health workers faced some technical glitches while uploading data on the app about beneficiaries receiving the vaccine in some sites, as the application was reported to have slowed down.
