Vaccinations for all those above 18 will begin from May 1.
The online registration for eligible beneficiaries opened on April 28, 4pm today.
However, shortly after the registrations opened, several people complained that they could not access the CoWin portal or the app.
Many took to social media to share screenshots of pages showing the error “504 Gateway Time-Out”.

Several people also shared photos of their Aarogya Setu app which was showing error upon entering the mobile number. Some said they didn’t receive the OTP after entering the phone number or couldn’t fill in their details after successful logging in.

Some who were able to login said the app shows vaccines aren’t available for those in the 18-45 age group.
