Aarogya Setu app has started marketing blue tick against the names of people who have been partially or fully vaccinated against COVID-19.
Taking cues from the WhatsApp mobile application, Aarogya Setu is adding a single tick against the names of people who have taken a single dose of the vaccine. Meanwhile, people who have been fully vaccinated with two doses are getting two blue ticks against their profiles on the app. Fully vaccinated citizens will also get a blue shield along with the double ticks.
Aarogya Setu recently updated Indians about the new feature in its on Twitter. On the microblogging platform, the app said, “Now your Vaccination Status can be updated on Aarogya Setu. Get yourself vaccinated – Get the Double Blue Ticks and Get the Blue Shield.”
Using Aarogya Setu, fully vaccinated people might get permissions to travel in the country by displaying the status on the app. Government officials can grant permission to them if they can produce their vaccination certificates.
