COVID-19 vaccination status can now be updated on the Aarogya Setu app; here’s how


Aarogya Setu app has rolled out a new feature wherein users can update their vaccination status. Users can check their vaccination using the mobile number used for registration on CoWIN app.

Those users who have got a single dose will get a single blue tick while those who got their second dose will have a double blue tick on their home screen with the Aarogya Setu logo. Users will get a blue shield on the Aarogya Setu app a fortnight after the second dose.

In case you have taken at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, you will get the ‘partially vaccinated/vaccinated (unverified)’ tab on the Aarogya Setu home screen, based on the vaccination status declaration given by the user during the self-assessment.

If a user has taken the second dose also as per their self-assessment, a Double blue border will appear, and status will be ‘vaccinated (unverified)’. The Aarogya Setu Icon will be of grey shade. If the user has taken the first dose, then the ‘unverified’ text will be removed, and the grey shade icon will show the Aarogya Setu colors after the verification. The users can click on either the ‘partially vaccinated’ or ‘vaccinated’ tab to download their vaccination certificate.

In order to update or remove the ‘unverified tab,’ users will have to validate their vaccination status from CoWIN portal.
