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.
CoWINKYC-VSAPI released to track vaccination status
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.

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.
