This is given immediately after the person receives the first jab. The certificate contains all the basic details of the beneficiary like name, age, gender, and also all the details of vaccination. Under the vaccination details, one can find the data like vaccine name, date of receiving the first dose, the next due date, location at which the person was vaccinated, and by whom.
