Union Health Minister Dr. Harsh Vardhan on Friday held a review meeting with the Delhi government for the January 2 dry run for Kovid-19 vaccination. Talking to video conferencing, Dr. Harshvardhan said that a list of health workers has been made and will be uploaded on the Kovid platform. He described the vaccination of Corona as an election in the country.
During the meeting, Dr. Harsh Vardhan said, “As we prepare during elections, similarly we need to train every member of all medical teams responsibly.” He further informed that there will be two thousand master trainers at the national level. Training is going on in the states and districts of the country. This whole process is similar to conducting elections, where the team is also trained at a booth.
Through this training, extensive research is done on minimum details. At least 2 vaccines have sent applications for emergency use to drug controllers and specialists. Their data is being studied. The Committee of Experts of the Central Drugs Standard Control Organization (CDSCO) will hold a meeting on the application of the Serum Institute of India and Bharat Biotech to allow emergency use of the Kovid-19 vaccine at Oxford University. It is believed that the Kovishield vaccine of the Serum Institute will be approved.
After training over 2,000 master trainers at the national level, the training is underway at state and district level, in over 700 districts. The procedure is similar to organized elections where the team at a booth is also trained: Union Health Minister Dr Harsh Vardhan https://t.co/P4ti88kUEN
