India is ready to create history amidst the Corona epidemic. The country is gearing up for the world's largest vaccination campaign. Prime Minister Narendra Modi will inaugurate the first phase of vaccination through video conferencing on Saturday, January 16 at 10:30 am. Three crore health workers will be vaccinated in the first phase. A statement issued by the Prime Minister's Office said that this would be the world's largest vaccination campaign. This campaign will start simultaneously in all the states and union territories of the country. All preparations have been completed regarding this.
Union Health Minister Harsh Vardhan on Friday reviewed vaccination preparations in the country. During this, the Union Minister also visited the Covid Control Room set up in Nirman Bhavan. He also reviewed all aspects of Co-Win, an online platform prepared by the Ministry of Health for vaccination.
Emergency use of two vaccines has been approved in the country. These include Kovishield of Serum Institute and Kovaxin of Bharat Biotech. Covacine is a completely indigenous vaccine. Kovishield has been developed by Oxford AstraZeneca, which is being developed by the Serum Institute in India.
Union Minister Harsh Vardhan said that this is the world's largest vaccination campaign in view of the population. Harshvardhan insisted that both vaccines are completely safe and effective, given the rumors about the effect of the vaccines. Both will play an important role in controlling the epidemic.
Some instructions have also been issued regarding the Covid-19 vaccination campaign. According to these guidelines, the latest voter list of Lok Sabha and Assembly elections will be used to locate priority people over the age of 50. 12 identity cards, including voter ID card, Aadhaar card, driving license, passport and pension documents will be required to identify the beneficiaries of vaccination.
