The Covid-19 vaccination certificate can now be accessed through WhatsApp.

Anyone inoculated with a Covid-19 jab can get the vaccination certificate instantly by sending a message on WhatsApp to +91-9013151515.

The office of the Health Minister Mansukh Mandaviya posted on Twitter that a vaccinated person would have to send a message mentioning ‘covid certificate’ to the number and she or he would receive a One-Time Password.

Once the OTP is sent, the vaccine certificate will come on WhatsApp within seconds and can be downloaded.

“Revolutionising common man's life using technology!” tweeted the office of the Health Minister.

The new facility launched by the Union government received applause from the senior Congress leader and Thiruvananthapuram MP Shashi Tharoor.

“I've always acknowledged & praised the Government when it merits it. As a critic of #Cowin, let me say they've done something terrific. Send a @WhatsApp message "download certificate" to 90131 51515, receive OTP & get your vaccination certificate back by @WhatsApp. Simple&fast!,” tweeted Tharoor.
