Observation Hurdles to Vaccine Wastage: Why a Door-to-Door Covid Inoculation Drive Won't Work

News18

The Delhi High Court has recently refused to entertain a public interest litigation (PIL) seeking a door-to-door Covid-19 vaccination drive, while the central government has said such a programme using injections are not done even during the universal immunisation campaign for children.

But there is an argument that India, which began its polio immunisation programme in 1995 and recorded its last case in 2011, already has an elaborate network of health care workers that it should tap into. To put things in perspective, about 2 million workers would administer oral polio drops to about 172 million children on an average immunisation day.
