if you covin platform But within 24 hours, if you have searched 1,000 times for the vaccine slot or generated more than 50 OTPs, then you will be blocked. An official of the team managing the Kovin portal told our affiliate newspaper The Times of India (ToI) that such users will be blocked for the next 24 hours. Along with this, the portal will automatically log out if the vaccine slot is searched for more than 20 times in 15 minutes.
The Covin management team has taken these steps to prevent the deployment of bots or scripts to automate vaccine slot bookings. “This is being done so that those who manually book slots do not have to compete with the bots,” an official said. He said that by searching one or two pin codes or 20 times within 15 minutes in the district, there is a possibility that bot activity is happening somewhere. Therefore, such users are logged out.
Those who take the vaccine will be able to correct the mistakes of the certificate themselves
Vaccine beneficiaries can now self-correct the mistakes made in their Kovid-19 vaccination certificate on the Kovin portal. The government has announced a new update that will allow the applicant to rectify the inadvertent mistake in the name, date of birth and gender printed in the vaccination certificate. Vikas Sheel, Additional Secretary, Union Health Ministry said that users can make this correction through the Kovin website.
A tweet on the official handle of the Aarogya Setu app read, “If there are any inadvertent errors in your name, date of birth and gender in the CoVin Vaccination Certificate, you can rectify them. Visit Kovin’s website and share your concerns in this regard.” The COVID Vaccination Certificates help in travel and commuting to various other premises.
Earlier, the government had also allowed vaccinated people to voluntarily update their status on the Aarogya Setu app through a self-assessment process. People who have received a single dose of the vaccine will see a blue tick next to the vaccination status on their home screen, and those who have taken both doses will see two blue ticks on the app after 14 days. Both these will be visible after verification of vaccination status from TickCoVin portal. The vaccination status can be updated through the mobile number used for registration on COVIN.
