The Union Government has directed Niti Aayog to draw up a plan of action in case a vaccine for Covid-19 becomes available in the near future. The Government has asked the concerned authorities to vaccinate the employees in the healthcare system first.
Following the orders, District Collector Ravindra Thakare who is a nodal officer of the entire vaccination programme at district level has directed to prepare a list of employees in private and Government’s healthcare system who fall in high risk of getting infected as they get exposed to the infected patients.
A meeting was held in the office of the District Collector recently. The executive committee members, and officials of Government Medical College and Hospital; Indira Gandhi Government Medical College; different medical associations attended the meeting.
The list of all healthcare workers in all districts will be uploaded soon on the national level.
