The two blue tick marks are very familiar to Indian users as the feature is already available on WhatsApp that allows you to check whether the receiver has received and read the message or not. Do note that the vaccination indicator will only work with the number which is registered on the Aarogya Setu app. To get the status and double blue tick on the app you need to use the same number while registering for CoWIN. If you sign up on Aarogya Setu and CoWIN using a different number you won’t be able to check the status.
Aarogya Setu has more than 19.92 crore Indian users, numerous questions have been raised about the effectiveness of the app when it was launched in 2020. But it seems that the app has helped people in finding hospitals, booking COVID tests, and a lot more.
