Dry run for Covid-19 vaccine begins in all four states

Ahead of the nation-wide Covid-19 vaccination drive, the Centre is conducting a dry-run across four states on december 28 and 29 to test the readiness of the systems put in place for the elaborate exercise.

The mock-drill, to be conducted on Monday and Tuesday in Punjab, Assam, Andhra Pradesh, and Gujarat, would entail testing of cold-storage and transport arrangements, data-entry in the Co-WIN software developed exclusively for vaccine delivery, testing receipt and allocation, deployment of team members.

Each state will plan the dry run in two districts and preferably in five different session-type settings – district hospital, community health centre (CHC) or primary health care centre (PHC), urban site, private health facility, and rural outreach.
