*Kejriwal Government’s aim is to ensure last mile delivery of preventive and curative health care services, vaccination sites at Mohalla Clinics will make precaution doses of COVID vaccine more accessible- Dy CM Manish Sisodia*

NEW DELHI: 27TH JUNE 2022-To give a boost to the vaccination drive in the capital and make the precaution doses more accessible, the Kejriwal Government will now provide COVID-19 vaccination at Aam Aadmi Mohalla Clinics. For this, vaccination centres will be set up across all the Mohalla Clinics. This is a major step towards further increasing the vaccination rate in the capital, after a door-to-door campaign. Speaking about the initiative, Deputy Chief Minister Shri Manish Sisodia said, “State has adopted the multi pronged strategy to achieve optimal coverage of vaccination of all eligible beneficiaries. Currently, vaccination is being provided in a mission mode, but still a cohort of population for the second dose and significantly higher cohort is due for the newly added precaution dose. Addition of vaccination centres at Mohalla clinics will help us achieve the higher vaccination target soon.”

Deputy Chief Minister Shri Manish Sisodia added that for this designated staff at Mohalla Clinics will be provided training regarding COVID Vaccination Operational Guidelines by resource personnel. They will be responsible for carrying the vaccinations and logistics to the sites at Mohalla clinics. The responsibility of Aam Aadmi Mohalla Clinic will be to provide adequate space for the vaccination site, counsel the beneficiaries, and ensure that COVID vaccination guidelines are followed at the clinic.

Shri Manish Sisodia said, “as soon as the vaccination centres are functional they will be uploaded on the CoWin and beneficiaries will be able to book their slots easily.” He further directed the officials to complete the relevant work soon and get the sites functional on priority.

It is to be noted that earlier the government had been using Delhi government schools as vaccination centres, but now that the schools have reopened such a huge population for vaccination cannot be allowed in the premises. Since Aam Aadmi Mohalla Clinics are located in the heart of populous areas with easy access they will be useful for the government to provide vaccination to left out and eligible beneficiaries.

According to the current statistics, 3.49 crores people have been vaccinated including 1st dose, 2nd dose and precaution dose of COVID vaccine.
