CoWIN KYC-VS API helps track customer vaccination status

If you’ve been out of the house lately, you’ll find that vaccination status is an important factor in protecting yourself from the virus. Whether you’re visiting a shopping center or boarding a train or plane, you need to make sure you’re vaccinated. The COVID-19 vaccination certificate can be downloaded and presented at any time, but the Government of India is currently reducing the complexity of the process.

CoWIN has developed a new Know Your Customer / Client’s Vaccination Status (KYC-VS) API to help businesses check their vaccination status... This is useful when using public transport or booking a hotel. Instead of presenting your vaccination certificate, you can now check the status of your vaccination directly.

Users will receive an OTP when they enter their name and contact number on a KYC-VSAPI-enabled website. After confirming that, CoWIN will send a response indicating the status of the individual’s vaccination.

“As a practical example, when booking a rail ticket, an individual might enter the details required to purchase the ticket, and if necessary, the relevant entities might get vaccination status in the same transaction. Personal consent “ Read the government press release.

The government states that the KYC-VSAPI is both consent-based and privacy-protected. In addition, the developers of the CoWIN team have web pages using this API that enterprises can integrate into any system.
