SLT-MOBITEL has collaborated with the IT Division of Colombo Municipal Council (CMC) to introduce yet another pioneering initiative through Mobitel’s eChannelling service, enabling the convenient registration of persons for the COVID-19 vaccination. As part of the first phase, senior citizens over the age of 60 years and residing within the city of Colombo can avail themselves of this facility online, free of charge.
Commenting on this national collaboration, CEO, Mobitel, Chandika Vitharana stated, “As an organisation that is committed towards uplifting the nation and its citizens through cutting edge connectivity solutions, we are delighted to have joined hands with the CMC to see this initiative through. We are especially gratified to be providing our services to the national cause of fighting the pandemic in this manner, and ensuring that members of the public are made aware of the importance of keeping themselves and everyone around them safe – all through the simple click of a button. While this facility is currently available in Colombo city limits during Phase 01, we are working on extending the service island wide along with the expansion of the vaccination process.”
To use this unique service, citizens over the age of 60 can access the eChannelling website www.echannelling.com, or CMC website www.colombo.mc.gov.lk, or by using the eChannelling Mobile App and click on the ‘COVID Vaccination’ button which will then lead the user to a page displaying names of participating vaccination centres.
Customers can then select their preferred centre for the vaccination and a preferred time slot and proceed with the reservation by providing the required personal details such as name, NIC number and mobile number. A one-time password or OTP will be sent via SMS to the person’s given mobile number, and upon its verification, the reservation is confirmed through an SMS and electronic receipt.
