    Additionally, the response will be accompanied by a link to the CoWIN portal where you can register (in case you haven’t already). You can sign in for vaccination. The following steps, such as making an appointment, is to be done through CoWIN.

    Note that answers may be delayed (up to ten minutes) at this time — may be owing to excessive traffic — so if you do not get a prompt immediately, do not worry or become discouraged. The chatbot is up and running well (and so is your WhatsApp).

    Apart from WhatsApp, you can also look for nearby vaccination centres through the MapmyIndia platform. Or even the CoWIN platform. The homepage of the CoWIN website has a ‘find nearby vaccination centres’ feature and punching your PIN code will throw a list of all the registered vaccination centres in the area.

    Note that responses are delayed (sometimes by over 10 minutes) at this point in time — possibly due to heavy traffic. In case, you don’t receive a prompt immediately, don’t panic or be disheartened. The chatbot is working fine (and so is your WhatsApp).
