COVID-19 vaccination slots of both Covaxin and Covishield are available on the Paytm app.
A few weeks ago, Paytm announced that its users can now book COVID-19 vaccination appointments via the Paytm app. Users can search, discover and book their vaccination slots for both Covaxin and Covishield vaccines. This feature is different from the vaccine locator bot, which notifies users whenever there are new slots in the particular region for the particular age group, dose and vaccine. Notably, you will still need to register on the COWIN portal to book the appointment on the Paytm app. Here are a few steps that you can follow to book a slot:
