India is going through tough times while the second wave of SARS-CoV-2 initiated CoVID-19 disease is sweeping through the country. India has started its vaccination program in January 2021. While there was an initial dilemma amongst people regarding vaccination, as the days passed, people are participating with full enthusiasm.
From May 2021 onwards, anyone above the age of 18 was allowed to be eligible to get a jab. Govt. of India made an online portal ‘CoWin’ where people have to register themselves to reserve a COVID-19 Vaccination slot in their locality (or anywhere across India if they wish). We have already covered it in our post on How To Register For Covid-19 Vaccination in India?
But here comes the irony: With such a huge population eligible for inoculation, and only a mere 100-200 jabs per vaccination center, the rush for vaccination is just too much. Just like the infamous Xiaomi Mobile Flash Sales, finding an open slot for vaccination has gotten way more difficult.
While the rate of ongoing vaccination cannot be increased all of a sudden, developers across India have designed some ways to notify people as soon as a vaccination slot in their region gets available.
