Vaccination and disaster management

20 JUN,2021 | MEDC


 

Vaccination against Covid-19 is a national public good, and so it necessitates high-level coordination. Given the magnitude of the problem, government has put its best foot forward. Considering the scarcity of vaccines and the supporting infrastructure, not everyone can be accommodated simultaneously. Thus, vaccination must be carried out strategically in phases and categories to minimize infections, hospitalizations and deaths from future waves. This is disaster management planning at its highest, and it requires setting priorities across geographic regions and age groups based on virus vulnerability and existing comorbidities. If the government succeeds in vaccinatingIndia’s entire population by the end of 2021, it will elicit global admiration.
