Jammu and Kashmir administration begins advance planning for COVID-19 vaccine roll-out

The Jammu and Kashmir Lieutenant Governor’s administration has begun advance planning for COVID-19 vaccine roll-out in the union territory, officials said on Friday.

The development comes days after Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi held a series of meetings with Chief Ministers of states followed by an all-party meeting over the distribution plan of the vaccine.

As per the officials, Deputy commissioners have been asked to prepare district-wise micro-plans for vaccination sites, cold chain storage points and logistics requirements by December 7.

In the meeting, it was informed that COVID-19 vaccines candidates are currently in the third phase of clinical trials, an official spokesman said.

Further, it was informed that to carry out a dedicated COVID-19 vaccination drive, around 4,500 vaccinators are being identified across the UT with a capacity of administering 100 vaccines per site per day – cumulating to an impressive capacity to deliver 4.5 lakh vaccines a day, the officials said.
