The Union Health Ministry has launched the “U-WIN” platform to keep a digital record of vaccination of women and children in the country.

An overview of the news

  • This platform will be launched as a pilot project in two districts of each state and union territory of the country.

  • Every pregnant woman will be registered on this digital platform and records of her vaccination will be maintained. Later a record will be kept of their offspring and their vaccinations at the time of birth and later.

  • The platform is based on Co-WIN, the government's digital infrastructure in India's fight against COVID-19.

  • Vaccination appointments can also be booked through U-Win. Till now the record of vaccination under UIP was kept manually in the country, but now there will be no need to do so because now all the records of vaccination will be kept digitally.

  • With this, once the entire vaccination program is digitised, the beneficiaries will get the certificates immediately and they can also download them if they want. These certificates will be kept in Digi-Lockers.
