The CoWin portal and the Aarogya Setu app went down for several users who tried registering for Covid vaccinations in the 18-45 age group. Due to heavy traffic, the government portal was facing issues earlier. As things have started to settle, the portal has now started working fine. Starting today, the vaccine registration portal has opened for the 18 to 44 years age group. Phase 3 of the COVID-19 vaccination drive is set to kick off from May 1. Individuals will be required to furnish a valid identity document such as Aadhaar Card, PAN Card, Voter Card etc.
