Centre allows COVID-19 vaccination drive at public and private workplaces from 11th April across country

The Centre has allowed COVID-19 vaccination at public and private workplaces having about 100 eligible beneficiaries from 11th April across States and Union Territories. 

In a letter to the Additional Chief Secretaries, Principal Secretaries and Health Secretaries of all States and UTs, Union Health Secretary Rajesh Bhushan said a substantial proportion of population aged 45 years and above is in the organised sector of the economy and is involved in formal occupation in government and private offices or manufacturing and services. 

He said, with support of the State Governments, the efforts have been to consistently make the vaccination drive more pragmatic and also more acceptable and purposeful to the beneficiaries.

Mr Bhushan said, in order to increase the access of vaccines to these populations, COVID-19 vaccination sessions may be organised at these workplaces which are having about 100 eligible and willing beneficiaries by tagging these work places with an existing COVID vaccination centre. He said, the States can initiate due consultations with private and public sector employers and management to prepare for the launch of workplace vaccination.
