Status of vaccination

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

Those who have got a single dose of the vaccine will get a single blue border with vaccination status on their home screen along with the Aarogya Setu logo with a single tick.

A ‘Blue Shield’ with a double tick will appear on the app for those who are fully vaccinated, after 14 days of the second dose. This double tick will appear after verification of vaccination status from the CoWin portal.

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