Covid vaccination: Memes all over as Cowin website crashes 

CoWin websites crash as vaccine registrations open for people above 18, Twitter reacts with memes: 

Yesterday, India opened registration for the third phase of its vaccination drive amid the second wave, the CoWin website crashed within minutes after it started. As soon as it started, netizens who were waiting to get themselves registered to get the shot from May 1, reached the websites, only to find out that it had crashed. Many people made memes out of it. 

As vaccination in the third phase has been opened to 18 years olds and above, many have planned to get early booking. However, as lakhs across the country tried to access the portal at 4 pm, the servers couldn’t take the traffic load and crashes. People were greeted with error messages instead. 

While I was able to get the OTP and register successfully, I wasn’t able to get an appointment booked for vaccination. While some others say that those who got through the first few steps, failed to verify the details. 

As more people were trying to reach the website to register#crashed’, along with ‘#CoWin Registration’ started to trend on social media. 

While the portal crashed, people had fun cracking jokes and memes. Check out some of them below: 

Starting May 1, state governments and private hospitals will procure 50 percent of total doses directly from the open market to vaccinate the 18-44 year age group.
