Link Aadhar Card With Mobile Number To Get COVID Vaccine

The year 2020 brought various calamities and found to be very bad for human beings. The COVID19 is one of the biggest calamities that affected every part of the world. The world is seeing a very high death toll and is suffering from a serious threat to its existence. Still, Governments of every country are in severe trouble as to how to stop this epidemic. People are advised to wear masks not to protect themselves but to save the lives of their beloved family members.

For a year, scientists are trying their hardest all over the world to invent a vaccine. Scientists from the US, UK, Russia & China have played a key role. As a result, various vaccines have been released after testing on a limited number of people. Now, the Indian Government has also approved two vaccines Covaxin and Covidshield for their residents.

This is official news from the Government of India that it will be using Covidshield & Covaxin vaccine for their resident people and the first phase will be to protect front line workers that are above the age of 50 years. Because people over the age of 50 are at great risk of being affected with Covid. The Government wants to protect those old age people. Front line workers are those such as doctors, nurses, and paramedical staff.

In order to take advantage of this incentive of the Government of India, one has to choose either Covaxin or Covidshield. But you have to link your Aadhar card with your mobile number otherwise you will not be entitled to enjoy this benefit of the corona vaccine. Apart from this, you cannot use a proxy to take advantage of this incentive. You have to use your own mobile number for linking purposes.

The reason behind this is that to document each and every person getting the COVID vaccine in the Government database and in the future, no one gets left without this vaccine. This enables the authorities to check where a person has taken the vaccine and at what date.

Prime Minister has also confirmed that linking mobile numbers with Aadhar card for COVID vaccination purposes is necessary. This initiative is not to create problems for people but to keep a track record to make sure anyone who gets the first dose of the vaccine also receives the second dose. Otherwise, the purpose of the first vaccination will get lost.

Keeping in view the importance of the mobile number link with Aadhar, it has now become necessary to do this on an urgent basis, in case you have not done so. To further strengthen the entire system, the Co-WIN Application has been developed. This mobile application provides easy tracking of vaccination records of people getting doses.

Anyone can download the application to keep a record of his or herself. This application is a part of the Co-WIN digital platform. There are 5 different modules in this platform such as registration module, beneficiary acknowledgment module, administrator module, vaccination module, and report module. So, in a nutshell, it is a comprehensive platform that provides full support at every phase of the COVID vaccination.

What Is Aadhar eKYC? – Aadhar eKYC Process And Advantages

KYC (Know your customer) is one of the main steps in providing services or products. However, it is a very important step but it is very hard to accomplish this. You cannot know about your customer’s thing. Whatever investigation you do will still be left incomplete. That is the main reason many customers gave masses losses to companies. From a different perspective, customers were also in trouble as their personal information was used outside the companies for marketing or for any other purpose without consent. In order to solve these sorts of issues faced by both sides of the parties. UIDAI (Unique Authority of India) launched a paperless eKYC verification system.

eKYC verification is a wonderful system that allows the service providers in verifying the Aadhar details of the customers with the consent of the Aadhar number holders.
