India Begins Dry Run for Mass Vaccination

Dry Run of Covid 19 Vaccination

The central government has started a dry run in four states for the Covid-19 vaccine. It is examining the ground preparation of machinery for Covid-19 vaccination in two districts each of Punjab, Assam, Andhra Pradesh and Gujarat from Monday. So that the necessary deficiencies can be detected before the actual vaccination and fix them in time. By the way, the actual vaccination can start in January as per the Centre’s proposed plan.

Till now the government has been vaccinating only children and pregnant women. For this also, one day of the week is decided in different states. This is the first time the adult population in the country will also be vaccinated.

Due to this, the central government has kept a dry run on December 28 and 29 to see the preparation of government machinery for the Covid-19 vaccination drive. It is happening in two districts each of Punjab, Assam, Andhra Pradesh and Gujarat.

The process of transporting the vaccine from cold chain to vaccination sites is being carried out in the states in the dry run. Similarly, efforts will be made to find out what kind of problems can occur on vaccination sites.

This dry run will have the necessary data entry on COVIN (Co-WIN). The online platform will monitor vaccine delivery, testing receipt and allocation, appointment of team members, mock drills at vaccination sites.

This includes real-time tracking of cold storage and transportation arrangements for the COVID-19 vaccine. Along with managing congestion at vaccination sites, physical distancing is also being seen.
