A unique health ID number is causing confusion among several people who are seeing it for the first time on their vaccine certificates.
The number is seemingly being generated at the vaccine centres without the people's consent.
Only some basic information is needed to generate a person's health ID.
Then again, it was observed recently that many vaccine centers mandated people to bring their Aadhaar cards at the time of their vaccination. The mandate was implied even on those who had originally registered on the CoWin portal using a different identification.
It was observed in a specific case that the Aadhaar card mandate was put up as a system-level requirement on the vaccination centre, making it compulsory for everyone at the centre to share Aadhaar card details.
Several people who have received their first Covid-19 vaccine doses have been observing a unique health ID number on their Covid-19 vaccine certificates.
