Covid-19 Vaccination Drive

COVID-19 has been notified as a ‘disaster’ by the GOI considering the high mortality rate and highly infectious nature of the same. A major breakthrough in this regard is COVID-19 vaccine. Two major vaccines i.e. Covishield and Covaxin have been rolled out in a phased manner for vulnerable age groups and later on for 18 + age group. Mobilization of people for vaccination was the major challenge due to some negative propaganda and accessibility issues. However, with effective mobilization of ASHAs, ANMs, Presidents of GPs, Gaoburhas, NGOs, CSOs, religious leaders, eminent personalities etc. and making CVCs (COVID Vaccination Centers) more accessible [By creating Near to Home COVID Vaccination Centers (NHCVC) and administering door to door Vaccination for Specially Able Persons and elderly people] are yielding results with an upward curve of Vaccination coverage.
