Paytm Unveils COVID-19 Vaccine Finder on Its Mini App Store

Published

on

Paytm announced the launch of COVID-19 Vaccine Finder on its Mini App store. The platform helps citizens to check the availability of vaccination slots for a specific date by individually entering different PIN codes or district details along with age group ( 18+ or 45+). In case the slots are saturated for the near future, users can select the option for real-time alerts from Paytm once any slot is free. The automated process reduces the hassle and ordeal of refreshing the platform for new slots repeatedly. The data is sourced on a real-time basis from the CoWIN API where a slot can be booked to take vaccination to protect oneself and loved ones.

The company aims to enable maximum numbers of citizens to benefit from the service, get vaccinated in a timely manner & avoid crowding at the centres. The Government of India launched the world’s largest mass vaccination drive for citizens ranging between 18 to 44 years of age from May 1, 2021, to mitigate further chaos caused by the pandemic’s second wave. The vaccination along with strategic lockdown will help flatten the curve and build the country’s herd immunity at a faster pace. The launch of the Paytm COVID-19 Vaccine finder provides relief to the end-user to some extent by curbing the hassle of checking real-time availability of slots directly via the Paytm app and getting the jab at the earliest.

Paytm spokesperson said, “We have introduced a new feature to find COVID Vaccine slots in the nearby locality and set for alerts when new slots open up. We believe that with the combined efforts of Government, organizations, and citizens, we are on the right track to recovery. Our priority is to build collective resistance to the deadly virus as a nation, thus catalyzing the process of herd immunity.”

Paytm to Set up Oxygen Plants to Support COVID-19 Relief Efforts

Published

on

Paytm announced that Paytm Foundation will be setting up oxygen plants in 12-13 cities as hospitals across pan-India face oxygen shortage amid the tumultuous second Covid-19 wave.  These oxygen plants would be directly installed at hospitals, which would serve the oxygen needs for the entire hospital. Paytm Foundation has also sourced over 21,000 Oxygen Concentrators that would be sent to government hospitals, COVID care facilities, private hospitals, nursing homes as well as Resident Welfare Associations in the mid of May. 

Oxygen plants are devices that render possible the production of medical oxygen from ambient air while simultaneously supplying the gas to multiple beds. The company has currently raised Rs 10 crore from people across the country under its #OxygenForIndia initiative and has mirrored the donation amount making it a total contribution of Rs 20 Crore. Paytm is working in conjunction with other prominent organisations including Elevation Capital and the American Indian Foundation. The donation garnered under the initiative will be used to purchase Oxygen Concentrators and oxygen plants, costing between 50 lakh to 1 Crore each.

Paytm is currently between dialogues with the State Governments and hospitals for affirmation and approval to set up these oxygen plants; once purchased, the oxygen plants will be provided free of cost to Government hospitals by Paytm Foundation.

Paytm spokesperson Said, “Before economic growth, we need to think about the sustainability of our human forces, the people. While Oxygen Concentrators are good for short term support, we figured out that oxygen plants could provide our healthcare system with larger support. Hence, we decided to direct our donations to build oxygen plants at government hospitals for free.  We are overwhelmed at the collective effort and support citizens of the country have shown to help pacify the ordeal caused by the pandemic’s 2nd wave. We are optimistic that with the right resources and empathy for our fellow countrymen, we will not only survive this crisis but also come out stronger.”

With aim of saving a maximum number of lives, the Paytm Foundation is also supporting other start-ups, organisations and enterprises to source OCs from the international market. This will help to minimize the timeline for logistical requirements while ensuring that hospitals & other COVID care centres receive the much needed OCs sooner. The entire sourcing, regulatory approvals, and delivery will be managed by the foundation, while the other organizations only need to pay for the cost of the OCs that they will order.
