20-25crore to get corona vaccine by July: Govt
NEW DELHI: Revealing details of India’s vaccination plans for Covid-19, health minister Harsh Vardhan said the go nment is expecting to receive and utilise 40-50 crore doses to cover 20-25 crore people by July 2021 and has started working on plans to ramp up human resource and training capacity on a massive scale.
The Centre has also asked the states to submit lists of populations that would receive the vaccine on priority, especially health workers engaged in Covid-19 management, Vadhan said during an interaction on social media called ‘Sunday Samvad’. Vaccine procurement will be done centrally and consignments tracked real-time to ensure they reach those who need it the most and there is no black-marketing.
Outlining the priority accorded to healthcare workers, Vardhan said the list of frontline personnel will include go nment as well as private sector doctors, nurses, paramedics, sanitary staff, ASHA workers, surveillance officers and many other occupational categories who are involved in tracing, testing and treatment of patients. This planning exercise is to be completed by the end of October.
The go nment is keeping an eye on immunity data with regard to Covid-19 disease while finalising these plans, Vardhan said. “Our go nment is working round-the-clock to ensure that there is a fair and equitable distribution of vaccines, once they are ready. Our utmost priority is how to ensure a vaccine for each and everybody in the country,” he said.
India has three vaccines in phase 2-3 trials, which are so far showing promising results. The Serum Institute of India is partnering the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine while Bharat Biotech is developing COVAXIN and Zydus Cadila is working on the third. India is also part of the GAVI alliance that is intended to ensure that 92 low and middle income countries get access to the vaccine.
印度有三种处于2-3阶段试验的疫苗，目前的结果显示有望成功。印度血清研究所正在合作研制牛津-阿斯利康疫苗，而巴拉特生物技术公司正在研制COVAXIN, 第三种疫苗由Zydus Cadila研制。印度也是全球疫苗和免疫联盟的成员，该联盟旨在确保92个中低收入国家获得疫苗。
The go nment has indicated that a vaccine could be available by early 2021, but sources said that the exact approvals will depend on when trial data is made available. “There is no reason to delay approvals once the data is validated,” said an official.

By that time, almost 100 crore Indians will develop antibody and will not require any vaccine.
Divert attention from Hathras and Farm Bill. First make the vaccine available then announce it.
i think you are supposed to luanch on 15 August?? yes but you have not written year right?? feku company.
The BJP govt is facing trouble on all fronts in the country. They are desperate for a life line and will politicise the pandemic, to gain favouritism from the public.The BJP will take a commission form the vaccine.
How a vaccine will work when Corona virus is fast mutating?
This is fake news by feku's cronies with election in mind. The health ministry has not got into an agreement yet with Pharma companies. All wishful thinking and taking the public on a joy ride.
Harsha is an incompetent fellow like Nirmala and the biggest incompetent is the person who made them ministers. Do I need to tell who he is?
Vaccine not yet invented but Adani or Ambani must have already got the contract to provide vaccine.
Foreign go nments have poured in billions of dollars to fund research and to procure vaccines...we paid 0 rupees . Cadila , Bharat biotech...etc are developing vaccines with their own money .
We will get vaccine only by default because we fall in poor countries category and WHO will fund our vaccination drive .
Means India is going to face the Virus Heat till July ...God knows how many people will be infected till then ..

May God help go nment to meet their plans as soon as possible, sometimes BJP does good work, that's appreciable.
There is no vaccine till date which is successful, just zumla like rest of BjP promises or they are trying to kill those 25 crore people
Is this is the same project plan when it was told India will develop it own vaccine by 15th August 2020
Corona made doctors into millionaires in no time. Don't know what's the percentage of feku commission in it?
Which vaccine, nothing till date is successful so which one. You can only fool fools
Appreciate the effort. Unfortunately the rest 110 crore people would have contacted the virus and recovered by then.
Or dead by then.
Seedhi Baat No Bakwaas
another Feku shot by Modi team.
Let’s hope that the promise of 40-45 crores vaccine doses to be available by July next year are met and does not go away as another unkept commitment.
Those who created the virus knows vaccine/medicine as well.
