Sr Adv Anil Sakhare for @mybmc
Aruna Kamat-Pai, Public Prosecutor for State.
Sakhare: 2,774 odd number of people cheated. Over 1,000 of these people approached us, we have checked them. There are no complaints. @MumbaiPolice report shows that saline water was used in these fake vaccine camps.

Dr. N K Arora, Chairman of India's #COVID19 Working Group of the National Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation (NTAGI) speaks to @DDNewslive on India's COVID-19 Vaccination Drive, stay tuned for LIVE updates (1/n)🧵
India has currently 2 vaccines-COVISHIELD & COVAXIN. The interval between 2 doses of COVAXIN is 4 wks & consistent studies have shown that this is the right interval: Dr. Arora, Chairman, NTAGI explains why we decided to expand gap between 2 #COVISHIELD doses to 12-16 wks
(2/n)🧵
Initial studies on #COVISHIELD were very heterogeneous. Some countries like UK went for 12 wks dose interval when they introduced the vaccine.While we were privy to this data, when we decided our interval, we went for 4 wks interval based on our bridging trial data:Dr Arora

#BombayHighCourt is hearing the PIL raising grievances concerning booking of vaccination slots on the #Cowin vaccination portal.

#COVID19 #COVIDVaccination
Adv Jamsheed Master submits on behalf of the petitioner, Yogeeta Vanzara, that in the state of Maharashtra, in places like Kolhapur plans till June 30 are published, in places like Gadchiroli and Nandurbar, weekly plans are published.

#COVIDVaccination #BombayHighCourt
Master: My only prayer is that similar plans may be adopted by us. Having a plan helps people to plan their office leave, plan for their old parents. And in general it will save time.

Dear @CMOTamilnadu @mkstalin @Subramanian_ma sir, #Erode has severe strategy lapse for vaccination. No updates in #Cowin and offline updates provided directly at respective UPHC’s who provide only tokens. Ppl standing in queue since 3 AM.
There is a lockdown in the state and it’s not possible to visit the UPHC for checking availability and details for next day as the updates are done the prior day evening. There is no information from district authorities thru press or aggressive communication.
I heard about the vaccination information once thru the broadcast speaker which is attached to the corporation garbage pickup vehicle when they do a daily roundup to collect garbage. It is all happening thru word of mouth, personal communication etc., UpHC phone #’s busy 24*7

Good to see the observations of the Supreme Court in the #suomoto petition on #Covid19 crisis in #India. Certain key aspects of the order released today: 1/n
The court clearly understands that there are limits for judicial intervention on policy matters. But at the same time, the court clearly indicates that there are also circumstances wherein it should intervene as a constitutional court. 2/n
The policy of Central Government wherein it
is conducting free vaccination for those above 45 years and insisting on paid vaccination by the State/UT Governments and private hospitals for persons between 18-44 years is prima facie arbitrary and irrational. 3/n

SC On Pvt Hospitals: Present system of allowing only digital registration & booking of appointment on CoWIN coupled with current scarcity of vaccines, will ultimately ensure that initially all vaccines, whether free or paid, are 1st availed by the economically privileged.

thread
Supreme Court: Private Hospitals provide a public health service, they still remain private, for-profit entities.

Consequently, they may sell the vaccine doses procured at a higher price.

*Follow thread for more*
Supreme Court: Private hospitals also may not sell all their vaccine doses publicly through appointments on #CoWIN, but rather sell them for lucrative deals directly to private corporations who wish to vaccinate their employees

Why are engineers and technologists running vaccination in #india @drharshvardhan @PMOIndia ? The #cowin portal leads to exclusion of those who don't have smart phones, aren't tech savvy, are women, have data packs. Don't you see ground realities before coming out with policies?
Also please refer us to the official document which is not an FAQ that mandates #cowin for vaccination
Until recently #cowin was only available in English. India isn't Bangalore.

#VaccinationForAll
The @MoHFW_INDIA has allowed on-site registration for the 18-44 age group. This is limited to Government #COVIDVaccination centers (CVCs) at the present moment.
pib.gov.in/PressReleseDet…
#cowinregistration #VaccinationDrive #COVID19 #IndiaFightsCOVID19 Image
But this is a mere eyewash because-
1.This has been left to the discretion of the respective state/ UT governments
2.This shall be implemented only if vaccine has been left unutilised from online registrations and that too at Government CVCs.
#VaccineFor18Plus #VaccineForAll
While this has been stated in a press release, the #CoWIN website’s FAQs still state that online registration is mandatory for 18-44 age group.

I have put down my tweet that had some tricks and tips to book slots using telegram channels, etc etc.

Reason ?
👇
There is a large population in India who is not Tech Savvy, doesn't understand English, even don't know how to use the Internet. Thus, amplifying all these tips and tricks would be injustice for them

So what now ?
👇
Thus now I'm open for help all those people who have no privilege for Smartphones or unable to use the Internet to book vaccination slots.

If you know any such people please DM me I'll be happy to help them.

Request to others 👇

Unpopular opinion-We did terrible #AEFI-because #CoWIN was reduced to Aadhaar , facial recognition, vaccination certificates, APIs and what not - forgetting primary purpose was #AEFI management. Leave your hate for Prof, "Correlation is not Causation", think about the problem. 1/
The scale of #AEFI *from social media* is collated under #VAERS_India - by @bulletmanV

A proper #AEFI management would have meant - feedback loops to vaccine research, *that* much less loss of lives. Keep your *no questions on vaccines* koolaid at home FFS.
Forwarded as recieved. This is not some anti-vaxxer / economist writing this.

At a time when the entire country is grappling with #COVID-19, mandatory #CoWin registration by @AyushmanNHA will lead to exclusion of citizens from 18-44 years from vaccination who do not use smartphones or do not have an internet connection.
@rssharma3 @MoHFW_INDIA
Not every citizen has digital literacy to be able to register online for vaccination via CoWIN's website or mobile application.
As @prateekwaghre pointed out that as of December, 2020, there are only 58 internet subscribers out of 100 people in India. This would further push people from getting #vaccination.

Thread. For the age group of 18-45, as per @AyushmanNHA, “for all 18+ citizens, vaccinations will not be done on a walk-in basis. Individuals will be required to register beforehand on the #CoWIN portal to ensure physical distancing”. This will cause exclusion. Why? 1/n
Recent experience: Out of 14,42,10,652 Vaccinations registrations, through CoWin are 2,52,96,511, walk-in 9,33,47,824 or Health Care or Front Line Workers 2,55,66,317. Source: CoWin Dashboard (April 28). 2/n

India's software #COVID19 vaccine software CoWIN (designed by Trigyn Technologies, hosted on Amazon Web Services) has been hitting snags. @PratapVikramSin @OBanerji and me find out what doctors, health workers are facing on ground & how this will effect vaccination drive #thread
Doctors receive erroneous text messages saying vaccination has been delayed (later getting a call saying its actually not), another scheduling at a later date when doc has already got his dose #CowinApp #CoWIN - Graphic by @ShirtShanks
Ministry of Health & that of IT has been super secretive about CoWIN's making, we didn't know beyond UNDP's involvement in making the app, until sources told us that Trigyn Tech and Amazon Web Services are involved, despite reservations expressed by Ministry of Health.
