Prime News, National, Health, Disease, Vaccine, New Delhi, January 15:- Prime Minister Narendra Modi will launch the world’s largest COVID-19 vaccination programme tomorrow morning (January 16) through video conferencing. This pan India rollout of COVID-19 vaccination drive will cover the entire length and breadth of the country.
A total of 3,006 session sites across all states and Union Territories (UTs) will be virtually connected during the launch. Around 100 beneficiaries will be vaccinated at each session site on the inaugural day.
This vaccination programme is based on the principles of priority groups to be vaccinated and health care workers, both in government and private sectors including ICDS workers, will receive the vaccine during this phase.
The vaccination programme will use Co-WIN, an online digital platform developed by the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare (MoHFW), which will facilitate real time information of vaccine stocks, storage temperature and individualised tracking of beneficiaries for COVID-19 vaccine.
A dedicated 24×7 call centre, 1075, has also been established for addressing the queries related to COVID-19 pandemic, vaccine rollout and the Co-WIN software.
Adequate doses of both Covishield and Covaxin have already been delivered across the country to all the states and UTs with the active support of the Ministry of Civil Aviation. (Inputs: Agencies, NGB)
