Contact tracing mobile application Aarogya Setu will now display the users’ vaccination status with a blue shield.
The blue shield is for those who have been fully vaccinated.

The Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology in an official statement on Tuesday informed,
“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. This is done after verification of Vaccination Status from the CoWIN portal.”

People who have received single dose, will get a single blue border with vaccination status on their home screen along with Aarogya Setu logo with a single tick.
“With the second dose, the home screen will have a double border and Aarogya Setu logo will have [a] double tick. 14 days after the second dose, Aarogya Setu will have a blue shield,” the statement said. “This would make easy check of Vaccination Status possible for travel and access to various premises.”

How to update Vaccination Status:
• All Aarogya Setu users will get the option to “Update the Vaccination Status” if they have not taken the revised self-assessment.
• On taking the self-assessment on Aarogya Setu, those users 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.
• Those who are fully vaccinated will get a Blue Shield on the home page of the Aarogya Setu app with double blue ticks on the Aarogya Setu Logo – 14 days after the second dose.
• This is done after verification of Vaccination Status from the CoWIN portal.
