Ever since there has been vaccination drives going on in the world in various countries it seems that India is also now ready to be a part of the same.
Arvind Kejriwal Delhi CM stated that there will be 51lakh people to get Covid vaccines in the first phase of vaccination in the capital and that the city has storage for 74 lakh doses which shall be increased to 1.15 crore within a week.
India’s capital city is all set to provide vaccines to the prioritised people as soon as it is authorised and approved by the authorities. The people are divided into three priority categories for the immunization.
As decided by the government the three categories divided o the people who the government has prioritised for the first phase of vaccine sum up to a total of 51 lakh including health workers, front line workers, people with co-morbidities, and at last those above the age of 50. Seeing the division and selection of people it can be understood that it includes all those who are at the highest risk of getting infected from the virus.
Ever selected individual shall receive 2 doses which means that a total of 1.02 doses will be required in the first phase of the vaccine drive.
It is also known that these people shall be informed to receive the doses via messages or some other modes of communication. The government instated these rules in order to ensure that there is no further spread of the virus and no more lives of the most important people are in danger and that those who are Covid heroes get the treatment they so righteously deserve more than anyone. These people have been at people’s service throughout the virus and did not thin of themselves but served the nation and the community risking their lives. It is very important to realize what importance and place these prioritized people hold in the country and be given more respect.
The Delhi government’s plan is in line with the recommendations made by the National Expert Group on Vaccine Administration of Covid-19 (NEGVAC). Kejriwal said Delhi has made all arrangements to receive and store vaccine doses. “Right now Delhi has the capacity to store 74 lakh vaccine doses and it is being augmented. In the next five to 7 days, the city will be able to store 1.15 CRORE doses,” he said. Those identified to be vaccinated on a priority basis will be contacted via SMS. “The government will inform them about the time and venue of vaccination. People need not worry about this,” Kejriwal said.
