The Covid-19 pandemic has been wreaking havoc on the country since last year and the only way we can put a fight against it is to get fully vaccinated. The vaccination against the deadly virus doesn’t prevent people from getting infected. It, however, reduces the severity and curbs the need to get hospitalized. So, if you haven’t taken the vaccines yet, taking both the shots of Covid-19 vaccination should be at the top of your priority list. However, to resume a normal life, only vaccination is not sufficient, one must also carry a proof or vaccination certificate.
Covid-19 vaccination certificate is important if you are planning to travel abroad or undertake inter-state travel as many states have made vaccine certificates mandatory. And in the coming days, it would become as important as your Aadhaar card. The certificate will let your travel freely without getting any RT PCR test done. The government of India has now collaborated with WhatsApp to make it easier for citizens to download their Covid vaccine certificate within seconds. You can now download your certificate by using these simple steps.
