Centre allows COVID-19 vaccination at eligible offices from Apr 11

TOG NEWS SERVICE, NEW DELHI, APR 08, 2021: THE Central government on Wednesday said it will allow COVID-19 vaccination sessions to be organised at workplaces with about 100 eligible and willing beneficiaries aged 45 and above from April 11.

The Health Ministry has written to all States and Union Territories (UTs) that COVID-19 vaccination sessions may now be organised at eligible public and private workplaces which are tagged with an existing Covid Vaccination Centre (CVC). Guidelines have been prepared to support the State and District Programme Managers with the requisite information and guide them on organising vaccination sessions.

With the extension of COVID-19 vaccination to all citizens aged 45 years or more from April 1, the Central government said a substantial proportion of this segment is in the organised sector of the economy.

"Organising vaccination at workplace will not only be convenient to the staff at workplaces but also help to avoid travel and hence reducing the risk of exposure to COVID-19 virus," said the government.

States have been advised to initiate due consultations with private and public sector employers and management to prepare for launch of workplace vaccination.

Only employees aged 45 years or more and registered in the Co-WIN portal will be eligible for the vaccination. A senior office staff, designated as the ‘nodal officer' will also facilitate on-the spot registration but only to the employees.

While the government workplaces will have the vaccination drive for free, private centres will have to pay about Rs. 250 per person per dose.

India has administered more than 8.83 crore vaccine doses since the start of the nationwide campaign in January.
