Co-WIN Develops New API

Best UPSC learning App

Co-WIN has developed a new Application programming interface called ‘Know Your Customer’s or Client’s Vaccination Status - KYC-VS. 

  • This will enable entities to check an individual’s status of vaccination through CoWIN. 
  • To use this API, an individual needs to enter his or her mobile number and name. Thereafter, they will get an OTP which they have to enter.
  •  In return, Co-WIN will send a response to the verifying entity on the individual’s status of vaccination.
  •  If the response of Co-WIN - 0 - means Person is not vaccinated, 1 - Person is partially vaccinated and 2 - Person is fully vaccinated. 
  • This response will be digitally signed and can be shared instantly with the verifying entity.
  • Co-WIN is already issuing a digitally verifiable certificate. This certificate can be saved on a digital device or stored in Digi Locker from where it can be digitally shared as and when required as a proof of vaccination.
