PM reviews Covid-19 vaccine prep: 'must be affordable & universal'

Jun 30, 2020 19:41 IST

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday chaired a high-level meeting to review the preparations being undertaken for vaccination against Covid-19. During the meeting, PM Modi listed four guiding principles that will form the foundation of this national effort: first, that vulnerable groups should be identified and prioritized for early vaccination, for example doctors, nurses, healthcare workers, non-medical frontline corona warriors, and vulnerable people among the general population; second, that vaccination of 'anyone, anywhere' should take place, third, that vaccination must be affordable and universal, and fourth, that the entire process from production to vaccination should be monitored and supported in real time with the use of technology. PM also ordered detailed planning for such large scale vaccination should be undertaken immediately
