Vaccination drive suspended in Maha till Monday due to Co-Win app glitches

(Eds: adds official”s quotes)

Mumbai, Jan 16 (PTI) The Maharashtra government on
Saturday evening announced suspension of the COVID-19
vaccination drive in the state till Monday owing to problems
in the Co-Win app.

The app has been created by the Centre for managing
registration for the inoculation. A nationwide inoculation
drive for coronavirus began on Saturday morning.

“Not just in Maharashtra, everywhere in the country
this app created problems in the execution of vaccination
drive. We have decided to suspend the vaccination for the next
two days,” state public health minister Rajesh Tope told PTI.

“On January 8, when a dry run was conducted, and again
today I specifically pointed out problems with the Co-Win app
and Union Minister Harsh Vardhan said he will look into it,”
the minister said.

Earlier in the day, a senior health department
official in Maharashtra said that owing to problems in the
App, text messages were not sent to many persons who were
supposed to get the vaccine shot on Saturday.

“The state government had planned inoculation of
28,500 healthworkers on the first day but the problems in
Co-WIN, which were noticed on late Friday night, could not be
fixed till Saturday evening,” the official said.

As many as 18,425 beneficiaries, or 65 per cent of the
target for the first day, were given the shot across the state
on Saturday, he said.

“We could not use it to generate SMSes to intimate
healthworkers that they should come to the inoculation centre
to receive the jab. In the absence of SMS, the health worker
cannot come to the centre for inoculation,” he said.

Out of 36 districts, Mumbai City and Mumbai Suburban
districts reported lowest 47 and 49 per cent inoculation of
the target, the data showed.

Hingoli district recorded 100 per cent vaccination
as all 200 healthworkers who were supposed to be inoculated on
the first day received the jab, officials said. PTI ND
