India developed Co-WIN as the central IT system for strategising, implementing, monitoring and evaluating Covid vaccination", CoWIN Chairman Dr R S Sharma has said.

The CoWIN platform successfully helped propel yesterday's (22 June) record breaking Covid-19 vaccination numbers. Over 85 lakh people were given their vaccination shot yesterday, which is India's highest single-day figure.
