Covid Dryrun Glitches at Bengaluru

EXCERPTS from Suraksha P, DHNS, Bengaluru, Jan 08 2021, 22:01 ist updated: Jan 09 2021, 03:12 ist

The very objective of Covid-19 vaccination drive run is to give health workers an experience of Covid Vaccine Intelligence Network (Co-WIN) platform – uploading details of beneficiaries, session sites and to identify the challenges thereon.

But the exercise did not go on the expected lines in Bengaluru and parts of the state owing to the glitches in the Co-WIN test link on Friday, January 8, 2021.

The Covid vaccination dry run was held at five government health facilities and three private health facilities in Bengaluru between 9 am and 11- Singasandra primary health centre, Kengeri community health centre, KR Puram general hospital, Ulsoor referral hospital, Bangalore Medical College and Research Institute (BMCRI), Aster CMI Hospital, Hebbal; Kempegowda Institute of Medical Sciences (KIMS) and Sapthagiri Medical College.

A test link of Co-WIN (www.uat.co-vin.in) and a dummy app (www.app.uat.co-vin.in) for the vaccinator has been created for this purpose. None of the beneficiaries received an SMS informing them about the time and location, which is supposed to be generated by the Co-WIN app, medical colleges and hospitals said.

Dr Ranganath T S, HOD, Community Medicine, BMCRI, said, “We tried our level best. After entering the pin code, it is supposed to open but didn’t. It worked in Mandya Medical College but in medical colleges in Bengaluru it did not. We do not have the authority to administer the vaccine without the one-time password during the actual vaccination time.”

Related story: Bengaluru healthcare workers wary of taking Covid-19 vaccine. Ramaiah Hospital authorities said many of their healthcare workers were reluctant to get vaccinated. Hospitals in Bengaluru will conduct a survey of their healthcare workers to determine if they’re comfortable taking the Covid vaccine. The decision comes amid allegations and speculations of adverse reactions caused by the Covid-19 vaccination and the absence of data on Phase 3 clinical trial in Indian population. More than 1.68 lakh healthcare workers are on the priority list for the Covid vaccination in BBMP limits.

These glitches are bound to come. For an exercise of such large proportions, it might be weeks before things get streamlined. I only hope that the vaccination doesn’t result in serious side effects in some people. The apprehensions of the people are understandable. Let’s pray that the things go smoothly.
