First batch of Coronavirus Vaccine will reach Delhi next week

The first shipment of the coronavirus vaccine will reach Delhi in the last week of December. There is, however, no clarification on when exactly the people in the national capital will be administered the coronavirus vaccine to protect them against Covid-19.

The Delhi government has identified 609 cold chain spots in the national capital for the storage of the vaccine doses, one among is the Rajiv Gandhi Super Specialty Hospital which has the largest facilities for the storage of vaccines. The government has provided training to health workers who have been linked to the vaccination process. In the first phase, 3500 health workers were trained. Of these, 1800 will be taken care of the vaccination process and 600 will be supervising. Others will work in areas where the disease is most prevalent. The training was provided by three expert doctors from Maulana Azad Medical College. The trainees from here will lead the next phase of training activities. Thus, the training, which started at the state level in each phase, is expected to be expanded later. The Centre has laid out a plan for the first roll-out of the vaccine. The first batch will be administered to around one crore healthcare workers across India
