The Union Health Ministry stated that it is all set to start covid-19 vaccination by January 13th. Health Secretary Shri. Rajesh Bhushan said that “based on the feedback of dry run, the ministry is ready to introduce covid19 vaccine within ten days from the date of emergency use authorization.
He also stated that healthcare and frontline workers need not register themselves, as their database has been populated on to the CO-WIN Vaccine Delivery Management System. CO-Win system is made in India and for the world and whichever country wants to use it, the Indian Government will actively help.” Health Secretary stated.
Dr. VK Paul NITI Ayog Member said that “An optimistic scenario is emerging with the pandemic situation in India, consistently improving in terms of active cases and new deaths declining let us hope this trend will continue. In terms of the new UK mutant issue, this mutation has entered this country and 71 have been isolated which shows our capacity to mount that kind of a scientific investigation. But at the same time we have not seen the emergence of any untoward cluster in the country as of now which is reassuring so far”. Dr. Paul said.
