Digital payment platform Paytm has launched Covid-19 Vaccine Finder Tool (COVID-19 Vaccine Finder). With this tool, people will be able to find the availability of vaccination slots. The company said in its statement that this platform will help citizens to check the availability of vaccination slots for a particular date.
You know, the Government of India has started vaccination drives for the age group of 18 to 45 from May 1. But due to limited availability of the vaccine, the slot is not available. Paytm has clarified that users can only find slots with their tool. For booking for vaccination, they will have to use either Covin or Arogya Setu App.
How to use
To use this feature of Paytm, users have to click on Vaccine Finder in the Mini App Store section above the Paytm app. After this, you have to enter the PIN code of your area. Also, your age group will also have to be selected. After doing both of these, you will have to click on the check availability with which you will know whether there is a vaccine in your area or if it is expected to come by then. A post by Paytm founder Vijay Shekhar Sharma regarding this new feature has also been shared on Twitter. In which he has written that due to this automated process, people will be able to find out whether the vaccine is available or not.
It is known that recently Uber cabs offered free rides to reach the vaccination center. In which people will be free to drive up to 300 rupees. With this, through Uber, you can also find the nearest vaccination center. People have also liked the free drive of Uber in the vaccination drive of the Government of India. Uber cabs run in 36 cities in the country.
