Hyderabad and Mahbubnagar will conduct the dry run for the COVID vaccine on Saturday. 

The dry run is likely to begin at 11 am and continue for two hours. In the city, Gandhi Hospital, Yashoda Hospital and primary healthcare centre in Tilak Nagar are the dry run centres.

"The idea of conducting this dry run is to see if there are any issues with CoWIN (Covid Vaccine Intelligence Network) software. We will also get an idea as to how many vaccine boxes should be kept at each PHC. At least 25 health staff will be present during Saturday`s dry run," public health director Dr G Srinivasa Rao informed. 

Health department officials said Covid-19 vaccination could begin before January 10. "We are ready to roll out the vaccine within 24-48 hours of the Centre giving the approval and getting the doses," Dr Srinivasa Rao said.
