A dry run of the Covid-19 vaccination process will be conducted in Bengaluru Urban, Mysuru, Belagavi, Kalaburagi and Shivamogga districts on January 2 as part of a nationwide campaign.
Select healthcare workers, who have registered for the vaccination drive, will be part of this trial.
The exercise, which won’t involve actual use of vaccines, will test the efficiency of micro-planning and identify glitches in the CoWin software that has been designed for the Covid-19 inoculation programme.
In each of the five districts, three session sites have been identified: the district hospital, a taluk hospital and a primary health centre. The idea is to check the preparedness of vaccine administration teams at the district, taluk and village levels.
