From selfie booths to special badges, hospitals in Delhi are going the extra mile to ensure more healthcare workers come forward to get the Covid vaccine. In Delhi, 25,762 healthcare workers have been administered the vaccine in five days, with 6,967 getting the shot on Saturday — while the turnout was slow on the first three days, it picked up pace on Thursday and Saturday after several hospitals allowed out-of-turn shots for healthcare workers. 24 people reported AEFI (adverse event following immunisation).
Dr Ajeet Jain, nodal officer of Covid-19 at Delhi government’s Rajiv Gandhi Super Speciality Hospital, said the administration has been counselling healthcare workers daily to motivate them to come forward for the vaccination. The hospital, which is also the sole storage facility for the vaccine, has so far inoculated 174 healthcare workers, lowest among the top government hospitals in the first four days. The hospital, however, saw 100 vaccinations on Saturday.
