From Monday, a “dry run” will be conducted by the Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) at four government-run hospitals in the city. This dry run comes after directives from the state government to all the district administrations and municipal corporations and will be conducted prior to the phase two general vaccination drive nationwide. Age group above 60 and those within the age bracket of 45 to 59 years with comorbidities will be targeted in this Phase.
The officials said that this run will determine the future course of action. In this phase, the healthcare workers and frontline who have been missed the present phase of vaccination can select vaccination centers of their choice. PMC health chief, Dr. Ashish Bharti said we have finalized four government hospitals in the city which include BJ Medical college, Kamala Nehru Hospital, Rajiv Gandhi Hospital, and Sutar hospital.
“This Take means that once we get the vaccinator module for the targeted population, we will check if it runs smoothly and then, take a further call of action”, he added. He further added that in the CO-Win 2.0 portal, beneficiaries will be able to self-register in advance. The Centre added that all beneficiaries will be issued a digital QR code-based provisional and final certificate. It also noted that the Government vaccination centers will provide vaccines for free.
