Indore Health Officials shortlist 4,000 probable vaccinators for COVID-19 mass immunisation drive

Theses probable vaccinators are the working staff of healthcare facilities running in the district.

The District Health Authorities in Indore have identified and shortlisted around 4,000 probable vaccinators, who can administer the dosage of COVID-19 vaccine in the first phase of the mass immunisation drive in the district. The vaccinators are the working staff of healthcare facilities running in the district, who would be trained to properly conduct a glitch-free vaccination procedure, under the state and district machinery.

Indore prepares for phase one of COVID-19 mass immunisation drive

In a bid to prepare Indore for the initial phase of the vaccination drive against the coronavirus, district health officials have buckled up to identify health workers to train them as probable vaccinators in the city. According to the District Immunisation Officer, the database of health care workers was created by the circulation of a form, which collected their personal details, along with Adhaar identities. All staff members had to fill the column which enquired if they 'could work as a probable vaccinator or not'. This led to the creation of an index of 25,000 health workers, which was sent to the state. The health officials then shortlisted around 4,000 applications as probable vaccinators.

First, this staff will be trained and then tasked with the responsibility of administering the COVID-19 vaccines, upon their arrival. At present, the district machinery has 308 vaccinators, in state-run facilities, who are catering to the immunisation of children and pregnant ladies.

Indore to follow state-drafted vaccine orientation plan

The Immunisation Officer stated that the district of Indore will follow the state-drafted plan for the orientation and streamlined distribution of the coronavirus vaccine. As per his statement, senior health officials in the district have already received the state devised blueprints for the distribution and allocation of the vaccine vials and the implementation of the immunisation campaign. Besides this, the district has also planned to initiate the training of medical officers, block officers, ANMs and other assisting health staff by next week to manage the COVID-19 vaccination drive.

Under the state's preparatory vaccination drive, Indore has been equipped with a dozen ice-lined refrigerators and deep freezers which will boost the infrastructure to store and transport the vaccine vials through a closed cold chain corridor. The Regional Director of the Indore division further informed that the city has received five lakh syringes, on Friday, to administer the shots to phase one beneficiaries of the vaccination drive.
