Harsh Vardhan wrote in Hindi: "People can get vaccinated 24x7 at their convenience. Prime Minister Narendra Modi understands the value of both time and health of citizens."
Day after the government decided to allow private hospitals not affiliated to Ayushman Bharat, CGHS and state schemes to be included as centres for administrating the inoculations, Union Health Minister Harsh Vardhan said the Centre has removed time constraint to increase the speed of vaccination.
Taking to Twitter, Harsh Vardhan wrote in Hindi: "People can get vaccinated 24x7 at their convenience. Prime Minister Narendra Modi understands the value of both time and health of citizens."
The Union Health Minister was replying to a news report that said private hospitals can choose any time window to vaccinate people.
The Centre also said that the hospitals don`t necessarily have to stick to a fixed schedule to vaccinate beneficiaries against the killer virus and can extend or advance the vaccination schedule any day.
This will ramp up the Covid-19 vaccination exercise as more people will become eligible for the life-saving vaccine doses.
Also, the flexible schedule allowed by the Centre is applicable to both private and government hospitals since those involved in the vaccination drive are linked by the government`s CoWIN app and website.
This will also help to avoid crowding at vaccination sites.
