New Delhi: Vaccination (Corona Vaccination Drive in India) is starting from Saturday to prevent infection of Coronavirus in the country. For this, the dry run has been done many times in the states. With this, the government claims that it is fully ready. Explain that Covidshield and Covaxin vaccines have been approved in the country. The government has said that currently there will be vaccination of health workers and frontliners. At the same time, their emergency use has been approved for other patients.
Through vaccination, the government wants to start another ambitious scheme. The government’s plan is to create unique health IDs of people during vaccination. Once the ID is created, its records will be digitized and will become part of the government records. On providing an Aadhaar card as an identity card during vaccination, your UHID will be created immediately.
Important information will be available from CoWin app
However, Aadhaar has not been made mandatory for vaccination. The government has not mentioned Aadhaar in the photo ID list. In such a situation, how many people will give Aadhar card as an identity card, this will be known only later. Along with this, the government also wants to keep a digital record of who has got which vaccine. The Kovin app (CoWin) will be used for this.
Significantly, the vials that will be used in vaccination will have to be used within four hours of opening. There will be 10 doses in each vial. Under the Universal Immunization Program (UIP), some vaccines are used for 1 month after opening the vial. However, this cannot happen without VVM. It is worth noting that VVM gives much important information related to vaccines. This includes the temperature of the vaccine. VVM is not present in this vaccination process, due to which it will be very important to maintain its cold chain.
