Guidelines for Integration of Co-WIN with Third-Party Applications Developed by Ecosystem Partners 1. Introduction The Co-WIN platform for management of registration, appointment scheduling, managing vaccination and certification has been rolled out by the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare (MoHFW) and it is being used by all participating facilities in India’s National Covid-19 Vaccination Programme. Private CVCs have been on boarded for the vaccination programme through the process laid down by the Ministry. Details of process for on boarding CVCs are as per the guidance issued by the MoHFW for Co-WIN 2.0 as amended from time to time and the same is available at . Guidance note for Co-WIN 2.0 letter dated 23/4/21 is available at Since the launch, Co-WIN has published APIs for various functionalities. The intent is to enable various stakeholders such as States/UT Governments, Private Service Providers, Software Developers and any Other agencies who wishes to provide vaccination related services to develop and rollout software solutions around and compatible with Co-WIN (collectively described as “Application Service Providers” (ASPs) on behalf of State/ UT Governments or other approved Vaccination Service Providers to enhance the diversity and functionality complementing Co-WIN, offer better user experience and choice to people, including for improving access to COVID-19 vaccination. While these ASPs can rollout software systems for all or some of the functionalities relating to registration, scheduling of appointment and management of vaccination and facilities, these systems will have to use the master database maintained as part of Co-WIN platform and any update (add/ delete / modify) will have to be made on this master database. They can retain copy of data relating to their customers subject to ‘Terms of Service’ provided as Annexure 2 of this document to ensure that the citizen has a consistent view of his/ her own record relating to registration, booking and vaccination irrespective of any third party applications he/she may use. Thus, Co-WIN will be a single source of truth with respect to all vaccinations providing unified visibility of the vaccination programme through the Co-WIN dashboard and enabling the government to drive policies based on aggregated data. Further it is required that the issuance of digitally signed vaccination certificates will also have to be through Co-WIN. This will enable citizens to access their certificates anywhere anytime through the Co-WIN portal and multiple other third-party applications like Aarogya Setu, DigiLocker, Umang and others. This document has been prepared in consultation with experts and various stakeholders and describes the guidelines on information exchange between Co-WIN and the various ASPs’ software and the terms and conditions thereof.
