The largest democracy in the world opened up its third phase of vaccination drive from 1st May 2021. Ever since we have heard countless stories and updates on social and print media about how the government apps and sites of Arogya Setu and COWIN have crashed and failed to offer vaccination slots to those wanting to register their names for vaccination. The third phase of Covid-19 vaccine registrations opened up for the major bulk of the Indian population – for people aged between 18 to 45 years. Considering there has been an unprecedented increase in the number of cases of Covid-19 in the last month, there has been an overwhelming rush to use the two government apps for registering for the Covid vaccine. Another reason people are rushing up is the news about the lesser quantities of vaccines available at vaccination centres.
Amidst all this confusion, many private entities are trying their best to prove their worth and contribute in whatever little ways they can towards this massive vaccination drive. FITPASS, India’s premium fitness-based app that helps connect fitness centres across the country with fitness aficionados, has also risen to the occasion and launched its very own vaccination finder for its members.
Let us first understand how the app is going to help people. Whether you have a FITPASS membership or not, you can use the app to register for the Coronavirus vaccine. The app uses the CoWIN API to help every Indian citizen find a vaccination centre close and the available slot at the centre for vaccination. If the slots are available, the user can book immediately, while if the slot is unavailable, the user will be informed about an available slot via email or SMS on their registered email id and phone number, respectively.
Go onto the site https://vaccinateme.fitpass.co.in/. A very simple to use website that even the aged or people who are not very technical savvy can use, helps you check the nearest vaccination center. To do so, you need to either enter your district or the pin code. On doing so, you will be immediately taken to the next page, where you can select the date and your age group to find a slot. If there is more than one vaccination centre in your location, and all of them have slots available, the site will ask you to choose from the list and then take you to the CoWin App to sign in and register for a vaccination slot. If slots are not available, you can click the option ‘Notify me when a slot opens up,’ and you will be sent a notification to this effect via SMS or email.
