The first vaccine dry run was held on 28 and 29 December in seven districts — Krishna (Andhra Pradesh), Rajkot and Gandhinagar (Gujarat), Ludhiana and Shaheed Bhagat Singh Nagar (Punjab) and Sonitpur and Nalbari (Assam).
While the second Dry Run held in all the state had gone off on January 02 without a hitch.
The process, in which participants receive dummy Covid vaccines, is meant to test the mechanisms and reveal possible gaps in the system ahead of the actual vaccination drive.
The central government has also asked all states to ensure effective preparedness for the Covid-19 vaccine roll-out. The dry run will also equip the state and UT administration in the management of vaccine supply, storage, and logistics including cold chain management.
