In the long run, displaying fully vaccinated status on this App could be a tamper-proof way of proving the same for purposes like travel.
Vaccination status can easily be updated through mobile number used for CoWIN registration. This would simplify checking vaccination status of people “for travel and access to various premises,” the ministry of electronics and IT said in a statement on Tuesday.
Those who are fully vaccinated will get a “blue shield on the home page of Aarogya Setu App with double blue ticks on the Aarogya Setu Logo – 14 days after the second dose.

With the second dose, the home screen will have a double border and Aarogya Setu logo will have double tick. Those who have got a single dose will get a single blue border with vaccination status on their home screen along with Aarogya Setu logo with a single tick.

“All Aarogya Setu users will get the option to ‘update the vaccination status’ if they have not taken the revised self-assessment. On taking self-assessment on Aarogya Setu, those who have taken at least one dose of Covid-19 vaccine will get the tab of ‘partially vaccination/vaccinated (unverified)’ on the home screen of Aarogya Setu. This is based on the declaration of vaccination status given by the user during the self-assessment. The unverified status becomes verified after an OTP based check from the CoWIN backend. Vaccination status can be updated through the mobile number used for CoWIN registration,” the statement said.
