West Bengal: Dry run for vaccination underway in 3 places”

Mohapatra said about 3.70 lakh people including health workers, front line workers and others have been registered for getting the vaccine in the first phase. The wards in the hospitals were divided into three sections-registrations, vaccination centre and observation rooms.

The health workers who were part of the dry run were already registered by the district administration on the website created for corona vaccination.

The massive exercise comes a day after a panel of government-appointed experts recommended approval for the Oxford COVID-19 vaccine, manufactured by Serum Institute of India, to the regulator Drugs Control Authority of India. This will help the program to be conducted without any hurdles ahead of the mass vaccination drive. In case of any adverse effect, they will be shifted in the waiting ambulance to the nearest bigger hospital, which will be tagged to the session site for treatment.

From here, the beneficiary will be taken to the vaccination room where a vaccination officer will follow the standard operating procedure of vaccination (it should be clarified that the vaccine was not administered in the dry run).
