Covid vaccination for those above 18: CoWIN site, app, Aarogya Setu app all crash, but where is the OTP?

The central government had recently opened the inoculation for everyone above the age of 18, a mega vaccination drive from May 1.

Shortly after the registrations were opened up for Covid-19 vaccinations of the age groups 18 to 44, the government’s CoWIN and Aarogya Setu apps went down for several users on Wednesday. 

Several users reported that they were unable to access these applications, however, after a minor glitch, the Aarogya Setu app started working. In addition, the CoWIN website worked well for users, instead of the app. 

The registration for vaccination opened up today at 4 p.m, less than an hour after many complained of the CoWIN site’s malfunction, though others successfully completed the process. The official handle of the Aarogya Setu app, meanwhile, tweeted that there was a minor glitch on the portal at 4pm which was fixed and the registrations are now happening. 

Many users took to Twitter to complain about the servers crashing, and also about not receiving the one time password required to login to the apps. Few users criticized the government’s lack of preparedness for the influx of traffic on the app. Various issues such as time out errors, 504 Gateway Time-out, server facing issues were faced by the users.

The central government had recently opened the inoculation for everyone above the age of 18, a mega vaccination drive from May 1 under a more liberalised and accelerated Phase 3 strategy. Those eligible will be able to register for vaccination on CoWIN, Aarogya Setu app, and UMANG App, the government has stated.

Currently, the second phase of vaccination that included those aged above 45 and those with comorbidities are being conducted. The third phase came amid a resurgence of the pandemic that saw thousands of people getting affected, which coincided with a severe shortage of medical resources.
