    PicIn a massive country-wide exercise, another mock drill on COVID-19 vaccine administration will be conducted in all States and Union Territories on Friday. The Health Ministry said, this drive will ensure efficient planning and management for vaccine delivery in each district of all States and UTs.

    Each district will identify three types of session sites, similar to the previous dry run including a public health facility, private health facility and rural or urban outreach sites.

    The Ministry said, Central Government is gearing up for the roll out of COVID-19 vaccine across the country. Two COVID vaccines have been given emergency use authorisation by the Drugs Controller General of India recently.

    To facilitate the entire vaccination process, a software, Co-WIN, has been developed by the Health Ministry for real time information of vaccine stocks, their storage temperature and individualized tracking of beneficiaries for COVID-19 vaccine. This software will assist the programme managers across all levels in conduct of the vaccination sessions.

    A dedicated 24×7 call centre has also been established for technical queries of Co-WIN users. The cold chain infrastructure along with sufficient supplies of syringes and other logistics have been ensured to begin COVID-19 vaccination drive.

    Around one lakh 70 thousand vaccinators and three lakh vaccination team members have been trained on the process to be followed at the vaccination sites. This includes beneficiary verification, vaccination, cold chain and logistics management, bio-medical waste management and reporting on Co-WIN software.
