COVID-19 : Preventing misuse of vaccine data

From innovative technological solutions to real-time information monitoring, several measures have been undertaken to ensure the timely availability of COVID vaccines across the country. At the same time, streamlining the supply chain of vaccines including storage is also accorded the topmost priority.

Recently, the Central government has advised the States to obtain permission from the Union Ministry of Health before sharing the E-VIN data & analytics related to vaccines stocks and the temperature at which they are stored. The step aims to prevent any misuse of this data by various agencies for commercial purposes.

It is worth noting that the crucial information related to specific vaccine usage trends for multiple vaccines used in Universal Immunization Programme (UIP) and temperature-related data can be used to manipulate the market and associated research with respect to various vaccines cold chain equipment.

Now, let’s get an understanding about E-VIN or Electronic Vaccine Intelligence Network

The Electronic Vaccine Intelligence Network (eVIN) is an innovative digital solution aimed at strengthening immunization supply chain systems across the country. It provides real-time information on vaccine stocks and flows, and storage temperatures across all cold chain points in the country.
