Centre asks states to form committees for Covid-19 vaccine drive

Oct 30, 2020 22:36 IST

The Centre has asked states to form committees for coordination and overseeing Covid-19 vaccination drive while ensuring minimal disruptions in other routine healthcare services, and stressed on early tracking of social media to dispel rumours which could impact community acceptance.

Stating that the vaccine introduction will span over a year with multiple groups being included "sequentially starting from health care workers", the Health Ministry said that the committees will review preparatory activities in terms of cold chain preparedness, operational planning, strategies for state-specific challenges in terms of geographical terrain and hard-to-reach areas.
