Preparations have begun in the national capital for the rolling out of COVID-19 vaccine. Around 3,500 healthcare workers are being trained for the vaccine rollout and out of these 1,800 healthcare workers will be deployed at 609 coldchain points across the city. Others will be involved as medical officers and inoculators at the vaccination booths.

The training session, which began on Monday, is being conducted at a centre run by the Directorate General of Health Services (DGHS) of Delhi government. The training is being done in a cascade model or top-down manner.

Delhi’s state immunisation officer and immunisation technical support unit of United Nations Development Programme have already received training from the Centre and they have now started the state-level training in Delhi. Those who are trained in the current sessions will then train the officials across 11 districts of Delhi.
