Union Health Minister Harsh Vardhan gave information about the COVID-19 vaccination campaign being run to eliminate coronavirus. He told that the Central Government is planning to give it a wider form by bringing more groups of population under the purview of the vaccination campaign. A few days ago, from April 1, the government announced to make all people above 45 years of age a part of the vaccination.

Harshvardhan told that people have adopted ‘Made in India’ vaccines and due to this enthusiasm and belief, the country has vaccinated one crore people in only four days. The nationwide vaccination campaign started on 16 January, in which the health workers were first vaccinated and after this, the vaccination for the frontline personnel started from 2 February.

Plan to increase vaccination coverage

The next phase of COVID-19 vaccination started from March 1, in which people over 60 years of age and those above 45 years of age with serious illnesses are being vaccinated. With this, a few days ago, the government announced to make all people above 45 years of age eligible for vaccination from April 1. The government is also planning to bring some other sections of the population under its coverage under the COVID-19 vaccination campaign.

Year of Science 2020- Harsh Vardhan

Harshvardhan has called 2020 the year of science. The process of developing a vaccine that took several years, often decades, was made in about 11 months. He said, “Research started with an unknown virus in January last year and now we have not only one but several vaccines, which will be applied to crores of people by the end of the year.”

Kovaxin developed under ‘Self-reliant India’ campaign

He said that both Kovaxin and Kovishield are being manufactured in India. However, Covaxin was developed in the country by Bharat Biotech under the ‘Self-reliant India’ campaign, which shows the country’s remarkable scientific skills and vaccine development potential in the world. He praised Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman’s decision to allocate Rs 35,000 crore for the COVID-19 vaccination campaign in the budget of 2021-22.

Harsh Vardhan said that the vaccination campaign as a ‘mass participation movement’ involving many stakeholders like ministries, departments, professional bodies, medical colleges, NGOs, CSOs, media houses, private sector, youth and women volunteer groups. Is being coordinated.
