With the aim to vaccinate at least 40,000 people by mid-week July, we began a massive vaccination camp from the first week of June. For which we developed an app i-Vaccinate which links RWAs with the hospitals. In collaboration with private hospitals that includes Apollo, Rush, KIMS and Yashoda Hospital," said BT Srinivasan, general secretary, UFERWAS.
Through this vaccination app, first the particular residential association should register the name of the members of their society for the vaccination. Once registration number reaches above 100 the private hospital gives a particular date for the camp in that particular locality.
"Observing the rush at vaccination centres and also how people are sent back due to the shortage of vaccine we have organising these camps. With this, in-house vaccination drives have reduced the load of hospitals. Through this app on Friday in collaboration with Rush hospital around 200 people from Sai Krishna Enclave residential welfare association , Yapral got vaccination from the camp organized by RWA at Tulsi Garden, Yapral," said Raghavendra , general secretary, Sai Krishna Enclave, Yapral.
