Got your CoWIN vaccine certificate wrong? Know the step-wise process to make corrections
New Delhi | Jagran Technology Desk: Citizens who are getting vaccinated get CoWIN vaccine certificates. However, many individuals have been receiving CoWIN vaccine certificates with inadvertent errors in details such as the spelling of the name, year of birth and gender. The government of India’s Aarogya Setu app has now come up with an option to correct these details in case somebody got it wrong.
Aarogya Setu, the Government of India’s mobile application for contact tracing and publishing of health advisories to contain the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic, shared the information as to how to get the details corrected in the CoWIN vaccination certificate.
Users can make the correction through CoWIN website:
"Now you can make corrections to your name, year of birth and gender on your Cowin vaccination certificates if inadvertent errors have come in," the official handle of the Aarogya Setu app tweeted on Wednesday. The CoWIN vaccination certificates are used at the time of travel and help in the access of several other premises. However, the portal warns that a citizen can edit the certificate only once and the updated information will appear on the final certificate.
