Vaccine: Bokaro administration asks hospitals to send lists of health workers
The Bokaro district administration on Friday directed all private hospitals to make the list of health professionals and workers in their institutions available, so that they can be inoculated with the Covid-19 vaccine in the first phase. The district health department has started its process to figure out the number of such workers at government hospitals for their immunisation.
Bokaro Civil Surgeon Dr Ashok Pathak said the state government will provide vaccines for Covid-19 based on the lists sent by the districts.
“In the first phase, vaccines will be administered to all health care workers, both of government and private institutions,” he said.
Deputy Development Commissioner Jai Kishore Prasad convened a meeting in this regard with representatives of private hospitals.
Apart from the representatives and Prasad, the meeting was attended by Pathak and Bokaro District Data Manager Kanchan.
The commissioner, in the meeting, asked the attendees to work in tandem and keep track of all aspects while launching the vaccination drive. He reiterated that health professionals working in hospitals will be the first ones to get inoculated as soon as the doses arrive.
Pathak informed that to get going with the vaccination process, Aadhar or Voter ID card details will be taken from each individual for their registration. Following this, an OTP will be generated for the vaccine. He added that this will ensure there is no discrimination of any kind and the vaccination will be done on the basis of identity proof and phone number given in the database.
