COVID-19 Vaccine Update: Centre clears 91 applications, including from Paytm, MakeMyTrip, to offer vaccine bookings
Earlier in May, Paytm had launched Vaccine Finder on the app as vaccination opened for all in India. The finder has filtering options which help the user generate leads for vaccine booking, including information such as the type of vaccine available and the fee charged for it.
The new feature in the application uses Co-Win integration to gather data about vaccination centres. For vaccination appointment, a user would have to register using their number and can locate the centres via pin code or name of the district. Following this, they will have to select their age group and mention if they are looking for the first dose or the second.
"It is our endeavour to help India come out of this pandemic a lot stronger. Our vaccine finder will help citizens seamlessly book slots at the nearest centre and get vaccinated," a Paytm spokesperson said.
