Indians Can Now Find The Nearest COVID-19 Vaccination Centers Easily, Here's How

People in India can now find the closest COVID-19 vaccination to their location through an Indian map app, and the steps are really easy.

The official vaccination registration website of the Indian government, cowin.gov.in, has been integrated with MapmyIndia. On Monday, Map My India announced the launch of maps as well as nearby search features in its mobile app and official site. The move is aimed to help Indians find COVID-19 vaccination centers across the country.

The MapmyIndia app is powered by MapmyIndia Maps and API won the Aatma Nirbhar App Challenge, which the government held 6 months ago to encourage indigenous applications.

To find COVID-19 vaccination centers near you through MapMyIndia, here are the steps you need to follow:

  • Step 1: Download the app to your phone or go to the site cowin.gov.in or maps.mapmyindia.com.
  • Step 2: In the search box, you need to select the current location or type in your address, or enter eLoc of interest, which is a 6-character digital address of any place in the country. eLoc works as a pin code that represents the doorstep of a place.
  • Step 3: Click on Search or Vaccination centers, after which you will see the vaccination centers closest to you. Next, you can click Get Directions to know how to get there with real-time navigation.

MapmyIndia CEO and Executive Director Rohan Verma said in a statement:

“In the fight against COVID, each one of us has a role to play. Since the pandemic entered India, MapmyIndia took upon the task of real-time geospatially mapping all corona-related places - testing, treatment, and isolation centres as well as containment zones. To make the critical vaccination effort seamless, MapmyIndia has put all the vaccination centres across India on MapmyIndia’s maps. Users can use the MapmyIndia App (mapmyindia.com/move) and Maps portal (maps.mapmyindia.com) to search and find nearby vaccine centres and get directions to them. They can also write reviews and report issues they face there - to help authorities get feedback and take corrective action, where required.”

In February, the Aarogya Setu app was integrated with the CoWIN app so users can receive information about COVID-19 vaccines in India. Users can access this information through the CoWIN section in the Aarogya Setu app.
