Mismanagement marks the first day of the vaccination drive. Bhopal kick-started its first day of the vaccination drive for 18 plus today.
Experiences from the field –
Naveen sr. sec. school was the only #vaccination centre identified by the govt. for administering the doses to 18 plus from today. More than 500 residents registered for the centre and started queuing as early as 7:30 AM. The drive was slated to start at 9 AM.
After standing in queue for hours, residents were informed that only 100 doses will be administered today. Several residents had to return without taking the shot, resulting in public display of anger/frustration. SMS was sent to only 100 people today in the morning.
No seating arrangements were made as well as social distancing was also missing. Health workers informed that beneficiaries will receive two SMS: one for CoWIN registration and the other for a slot at the center. According to the latter, residents shall reach the respective center.
Those who don’t get an SMS should not go to the centre. They should go only when they get a slot. A list of 100 beneficiaries will also be available at the centre with the vaccination team. At present, only Naveen Sr. Sec School is administering vaccine for 18 plus in #Bhopal.
