VaccineAlarm is a simple python script that allows user to get notified when their desired vaccine doses are available at vaccine centers near them. Users can use the config.ini file to set the desired configurations for the type of vaccine and the pin-codes of centers near them.

Users must have python installed in their system to run this script. It is also useful to have pip.

Installing dependencies

You can install dependencies using pip and requirements.txt or you can install the requirements manually.

pip install -r requirements.txt

Running the script

To run the script, simply run the script.

You can use the config.ini to configure the alarm to get notified for your desired doses. Let’s see what each config param does:
