Covid vaccination: Centre issues operational guidelines to States, UTs
New Delhi: As India gears up for the coronavirus vaccination drive with three vaccine candidates under the review of DGCI, the Health Ministry sent its operational guidelines to States and Union Territories for the distribution of the vaccine as and when it becomes available.
The document, which has been shared with all states, says that only 100 people per “session” at each site per day are likely to be vaccinated against Covid-19.
However, the number of people per “session” might go up to 200 if logistics allow, the document mentioned.
“If in any case more than 200 people are being vaccinated within a session, a whole team of five people will have to be deployed separately (one vaccine officer and four vaccination officers),” the draft SOP read.
