Travel app, ixigo launches Real Time COVID-19 ‘Vaccine Slot Finder’

Vaccine Slot Finder display real-time slot availability from CoWIN

The vaccination drive against COVID-19 in India is currently in full swing. ixigo has launched the Vaccine Slot Finder tool on its flights & trains app displaying real-time slot availability from the CoWIN website. The launch is aimed at increasing the chances of getting a vaccination appointment. Currently, due to high demand, it sometimes becomes a challenge to get the preferred slot.

This tool can be easily accessed in the ‘What’s New’ section on the app by tapping on the ‘Find vaccine slots’ option. One can select their area pin code or the district along with the age group and specify the dose they qualify for. A user can further filter the search results by selecting the vaccine type (Covishield or Covaxin), and whether they are opting for a ‘free’ or ‘paid’ vaccine center. If a slot is available, they will be redirected to the CoWIN website to book the appointment. In case of unavailability of a slot, users get an option to select ‘notify me when slots are available’ which will enable push notifications for whenever the slots are available in their area.

Commenting on the launch, Mr. Rajnish Kumar, CTO & Director, ixigo said, “With this initiative, we want to support the government’s efforts in accelerating mass vaccinations by providing our users seamless access to vaccine slots. Timely vaccinations will help ease anxiety and encourage safe and free movement of people going forward.”
