New Delhi, January 7
In signs of vaccine confidence, 78 lakh health and frontline workers have registered to receive the first Covid-19 shots even as the Centre prepares for the second and final pan-India dry run tomorrow to test system preparedness ahead of final delivery.
Of the three crore priority beneficiaries (one crore health workers and two crore frontline workers), 26 per cent (78 lakh) have so far registered on the government’s Co-WIN platform, which will be used to track vaccine supplies to the last mile and deliver them. Further registrations are underway as the process is voluntary.
Meanwhile, Health Minister Harsh Vardhan said an anti-polio drive would be conducted on January 7.
