The SOPs for 2nd dose scheduling on Co-WIN have been shared with States/UTs. The Secretary underscored the importance of efficient stock management practices and establishment of State Media Response Cell during the review meeting.

In a letter to all States and UTs, Union Health Secretary has pointed out that according to the Rapid Assessment System (RAS), while 97% beneficiaries are found to be satisfied with the overall vaccination experience, only 88.9% beneficiaries have indicated that they were provided information regarding Adverse Event Following Immunization (AEFI) at the session site. The States/UTs have been advised to ensure that all Vaccination Officers are trained and informed regarding AEFI, and they should provide AEFI related information to all the beneficiaries receiving COVID 19 vaccine.

In order to strengthen surveillance following COVID-19 vaccination, the Health Secretary has also urged the States and UTs to ensure that Adverse Effects Following Immunization (AEFI) Committees at the State and District levels meet regularly to oversee the overall performance of AEFI Surveillance System. This shall go a long way to instil vaccine confidence in the community. State/UTs are also advised to share feedback with and seek guidance from the Union Health Ministry whenever needed.
