MyGov Corona Helpdesk chatbot showing the nearest vaccination center on WhatsApp. This chatbot was launched last year to remove fake news and spread awareness about COVID-19. Within ten days of its launch, it had added 17 million users. Now under the third phase vaccination campaign, information has come out from the Government of India Twitter account MyGovIndia that MyGov Corona Helpdesk chatbot will now help people to find the nearest vaccination center as well.
How to find nearest vaccination center using WhatsApp
MyGov Corona Helpdesk chatbot is only available on WhatsApp and it is mandatory to have WhatsApp in your phone to take advantage of this feature. Follow the steps given below to find the nearest vaccination center.
Save the number 9013151515 in your mobile phone or visit this link to open MyGoV Corona Helpdesk Chatbot.
To start a conversation, write Hi or Namaste (‘Namaste’).
You will get the answer by automated process and after answering some questions you will be asked the PIN code of your area. You write your PIN code there.
After that the chatbot will send you the list of vaccination centers according to the area and pincode mentioned.
Apart from WhatsApp, you can also find your nearest vaccination center on the MapmyIndia platform or the CoWIN platform. On the home page of the CoWIN website, there is the ‘find nearby vaccination centers’ option where you can find the registered vaccination center of that area by giving your area PIN code.
