Union Health and Family Welfare Minister Dr Harsh Vardhan said, We will deliver a new India in 2022 as per the dream of PM Narendra Modi. The minister said, he was confident that the COVID-19 vaccine would be ready in the next 3-4 months and added that the priority to provide the same to 135 crore Indians would be based on scientific evaluation.
Addressing the FICCI FLO webinar on ''The Shifting Healthcare Paradigm During and Post-Covid'' today, Health Minister quoted: "I am confident that the COVID-19 vaccine will be ready in the next three-four months. Priority for the vaccine will be designed on the basis of scientific data. Health care workers and corona warriors will naturally be prioritized followed by elderly and disease-prone people. Very detailed planning is underway for vaccine dissemination. An e-vaccine intelligence platform has been created to discuss the blueprint for the same. Tracking and tracing of the vaccine would be neck-deep once it's available for the public. Hopefully, 2021 should be a better year for all of us."
He added, "Now again the situation in the country is getting better but the situation in Delhi is getting worse. So the Centre has again taken the initiative and the Home Minister has called the meeting again and asked Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and the Delhi Governor to take all the required steps."
