HealthifyMe has added a vaccine slot booking option inside of its app and website. The company had earlier launched Vaccinateme.in, a website to search vaccine slots and get notified about the same as they become available. Now, with the addition of the new feature, users can simply book their slots directly from HealthifyMe.
The company has registered itself as an Application Service Provider (ASP) with CoWin. It has also acqui-hired the under45 team, which was powering vaccination slot alerts on the popular messaging app, Telegram.
Under45.in is a vaccination slot availability finder, which provides live vaccination alerts to its 4.1 million subscribers via its 672+ channels on Telegram. Along with the Under45 team, its founder Berty Thomas has joined HealthifyMe as an Associate Director. Along with him, Suchdeep Juneja who developed mhVaccineTracker and Chandraaditya Putuveru who launched the twitter bot – BloreVaccine have also come on board.
The new vaccine slot booking initiative will run free of cost. Moreover, HealthifyMe has pledged $1 million to support this initiative and will invest more, as and when needed.
