Vijay Shekhar Sharma, the Paytm founder, took to Twitter to share that they are rolling out the COVID-19 Vaccine Slot Finder tool. He added that the tool will help users find vaccination slots at the inoculation centers near them. Those who have already registered for the COVID-19 vaccination via CoWIN just have to key in their pincode or district to check the availability of vaccines in the centers in their area. Also, you will get a notification whenever there are slots available near you.

The Paytm COVID-19 Vaccine Slot Finder tool has options for both 18+ and 45+ age groups. It shows the available vaccine slots for the next four weeks. If there aren't any available vaccine slots, then you can choose to receive notifications by Paytm Chat as soon as a slot is open. Once a slot opens up, you can choose the data, and will be taken to the CoWIN app or website to book the appointment. Do keep in mind that the Paytm tool cannot be used to book an appointment.
