Paytm

Paytm introduced a new tool inside of its main app, which provides users with help to find available slots for COVID-19 vaccines in their area. This feature is called “COVID-19 Vaccine Slot Finder tool” and is now available inside of the Paytm app for both Android and iOS devices. The tool acquires real-time data from the CoWIN platform to find and showcase users vaccination slots.

Paytm’s Vaccine Slot Finder currently has options for 18+ and 45+ age groups and shows available slots for the next four weeks. If the app does not show any available slots then users can choose to be notified by Paytm Chat when a slot opens up. If a slot is available then the user will be taken to the Co-WIN website or app to book their appointment.

Paytm’s Vaccine Slot Finder can only check the availability of slots in real-time by procuring data from the CoWIN platform, but it cannot be used to book appointments. That can only be done using CoWIN, UMANG and Aarogya Setu.

How to check available COVID-19 vaccine slots?

  • Open the Paytm app and scroll down to the Mini App Store section.
  • There you will find the Vaccine Finder option, tap on it.
  • Enter your pin code or district and then select your age group.
  • Click on the “Check Availability” option to check out the available slots.
  • If no slot is available then tap on the “Notify me when slots are available” option.
  • If a slot is available you can click on that, which will take you to the CoWIN platform and ask you to register.
