The government has announced that the corona vaccine will be introduced in the country from January 16. Prime Minister Narendra Modi convened a high-level meeting to review the preparations for the covid vaccine in all the states and union territories. The new voter list for the Lok Sabha and Assembly elections will be used to identify people aged 50 and above as per the guidelines of the Ministry of Health for Covid-19 vaccination. Let us know the details of vaccination in India in these seven issues.

Who will be given the corona vaccine first?

How ready is India for the vaccine?

A three-phase dry run was organized by the government in all the states to test the mechanism for delivery of the vaccine and the challenges of its delivery. The first dry run was held on December 28-29 in eight districts of four states. While the second dry run was held on January 3 in 74 districts. The third dry run was held on Friday at 615 districts and 4895 locations in the Union Territories. Vaccine administrators and those who are to be vaccinated have been trained. 2,360 people participated in the training for trainers held at the national level. These included state immunization officers, cold chain officers, IEC officials and development partners. In addition, more than 61,000 program managers, 2 lakh vaccinators and 3.7 lakh other vaccination team members participated in the training conducted at block, district and state level.

Which vaccines are available in India?
