Around 98 % of frontline health and Anganwadi workers Register For First Phase COVID-19 Vaccination

Bhubaneswar:2/11/20: Around 98 % of frontline health and Anganwadi workers have shared information for the preparation of a database of healthcare workers who will be vaccinated against COVID-19 in the first phase in Odisha. Additional Chief Secretary (Health) Odisha, PK Mohapatra on Monday said that information regarding the healthcare workers was sought from around 3,683 institutions, both government and private, across the State. Of them, 3,463 institutions have submitted the required credentials about their employees so far. As per official sources, the Odisha government had targeted collection of data of nearly 3,02,708 healthcare workers. By October 31, the State government has received data of nearly 2,95,349 healthcare workers.

The preparation of the database of healthcare workers comes in the wake of the direction from the Centre which had earlier asked all States to prepare the database in both government and private settings across the country.

The Health and Family Welfare department in Odisha had subsequently asked the State branch of the Indian Medical Association, AYUSH Association, Nursing Association, Paramedic Workers’ Association and Private Hospital Owners’ Association to submit details of their employees to district Collectors, Municipal Commissioners or Chief District Medical Officers for enrolment in the database.
