You can do so by heading to the Aarogya Setu app, tapping on the ‘Update your vaccination status’ option, entering your mobile number (which is registered with the Aarogya Setu app) and the OTP, selecting the beneficiary, and the status will get updated.
This will result in two blue ticks on the app’s logo and the blue-coloured health status, which will remind you that you are vaccinated. The new feature will allow the government authorities to distinguish between people who have got vaccinated and the ones who haven’t. There are chances that the blue tick system might introduce information that will prove helpful for vaccinated people.
