COVID-19 vaccine began on May 1, 2021, for anyone between the ages of 18 and 44. To note, the vaccine process was formerly open to those above the age of 45. Several tech companies, including Google and Amazon, have announced new programmes to assist people in finding the closest COVID vaccine centre. WhatsApp is the most recent addition to the roster of tech giants.

On May 1, 2021, WhatsApp CEO Will Cathcart revealed that the organisation was collaborating with health partners to run helplines using chatbots on the messaging app. The MyGov Corona Helpdesk chatbot now has the ability to locate the closest vaccination centre through WhatsApp. To recall, the MyGov Corona Helpdesk chatbot was launched early last year, right around the time the pandemic broke out for the first time around the world. The chatbot will now show the COVID-19 vaccination centre closest to you.

How to use WhatsApp to locate a nearby COVID-19 vaccine centre

To begin, add the phone number +91 9013151515, which belongs to the MyGov Corona Helpdesk chatbot, to your contact list.

-Open WhatsApp and look for the number in your contact list.

-Write Namaste.

-After that, the automatic answer would ask for your PIN code. Fill in the blanks.

-After that, the chatbot will submit a list of vaccine centres in the region.

If you don't want to save the phone number, go to, which will take you straight to the chatbot. It should be remembered that the chatbot will only answer actual questions.
