The COVID-19 vaccination drive is running in India for people of age 18 years and above. The central government has made the complete application process digital. The beneficiaries need to register via the Aarogya Setu app or CoWin official website. Post the registration, you have to book slots for vaccination, which is when the real challenge begins.
Currently, two COVID-19 vaccines against coronavirus are being administered across the country namely Covishield and Covaxin. Since there are a limited number of slots available at the vaccination center, booking a vaccination appointment has become quite a rigorous task. So, to make things easier for you, we have curated a list of websites that can alert you the moment a slot is available nearby your location.
Paytm COVID-19 Vaccine Slot Finder
Paytm users can register themselves on the ‘Vaccine Finder’ option that is now available under the featured section on the Paytm app’s home page. You can search available slots by filling area PIN code or manually through state and district. Also, Paytm can notify through alert notifications whenever the slots will be available.
