The scheme would cover people who are troubled by physical impairment, cerebral palsy, hyper-mental challenge, mental illness and other problems hampering their movement. Given their condition, these individuals have a special need for vaccination. Thereby, it was essential to recognise their requirement and launch this drive.

As per reports, the doctors and surgeons will first assess the state of the patient's disease and then, vaccination shall be provided to them within the confines of their homes. As per reports, the kin or caretaker of such a person will have to apply online for getting the benefit of the scheme.

All beneficiaries required to fill an online form to get the benefit
