Applying masks and maintaining social distancing will be very important.


Instructions to the states- Upload data of health workers on the Covin app


The Union Health Ministry has directed states and UTs to upload the data of healthcare workers on the Covid-19 Vaccine Intelligence Network (COVIN). These health workers plan to apply the corona vaccine on a priority basis. The Covin app has been developed by the central government and is going to play a key role in the vaccine rollout plan. The details of the purchase, distribution, circulation, storage, and dose schedule of the vaccine will remain on the Covin app. According to the central government scheme, MBBS doctors, BDS doctors, staff nurses (B.Sc nursing), assistant nurses (GNM, ANM etc.), pharmacists, MBBS interns, and BDS interns will be trained to apply vaccine.

No serious issues related to safety came up during this time. Moderna has also stated that the vaccine's affixation rate has been safe for everyone based on age, race, ethnicity, and gender.
