Centre advises states to form teams to coordinate with vaccine manufacturers & private hospitals for timely supply of vaccine

Centre has advised States and Union Territories to constitute 2 to 3 member dedicated team to regularly coordinate with vaccine manufacturers and private hospitals for timely supplies of vaccine. Union Health Secretary, Rajesh Bhushan yesterday held a review meeting through video conferencing with administrators from States and UTs on the progress of vaccination in States. He said, nearly 12 crores doses will be available to States and UTs this month, which will enable them to ramp up the vaccination numbers.

Mr Bhushan also pointed out that there is a substantial scope to accelerate the pace of vaccination even further. He urged them to increase the number of near-to-home vaccination centres, and create awareness among the masses for use of these Covid Vaccination Centres. These Centres can be open in panchayat ghar, school buildings, old age homes, community centre and Residents welfare Association office.

States and UTs were also exhorted to proactively increase engagement with private hospitals on COVID vaccinations. The Secretary also asked States to make focused efforts to drastically reduce wastage of COVID Vaccine. Mr Bhushan suggested them to retrain and reorient vaccinators to ensure judicious usage of the vaccines.
