Second Nationwide COVID Vaccine Dry Run Tomorrow

New Delhi: The second nationwide mock drill on the COVID-19 vaccination will be held at three session sites of 736 districts across 33 States/UTs.

The objective of the mock drill on COVID19 vaccination is to simulate the actual vaccine administration event. The entire planning of the vaccination drive including beneficiary registration, micro-planning and vaccination at the planned session site, will be tested, said the Union Health Ministry.

The dry run will also familiarize the State, District, Block and Hospital level officers on all aspects of COVID-19 roll out. This activity will help administrators in strengthening the linkages between planning, implementation and reporting mechanisms, identification of any residual challenges prior to the actual implementation and to provide confidence to the programme managers at all levels to carry out a smooth implementation of the vaccination drive.

Union Minister of Health and Family Welfare Dr. Harsh Vardhan interacted with the Health Ministers and Principal Secretaries/ Additional Chief Secretaries of the States/UTs to review the preparedness for the nationwide Mock Drill on the COVID vaccination.
