India is a country with diverse challenges grappling with the delivery and coverage of COVID-19 vaccination drives that are evident in the data source of MoHFW-GOI. Over 160/840 million (19%) eligible adults are fully vaccinated with two shots. Overall, 750 million vaccine doses (first and second) have been administered as of 17th September 2021.1 Even though the pace of vaccination has increased steadily over the past few weeks, the numbers to achieve 80%-plus coverage requires community participation in a big way.
The vaccination program is facing challenges at multi-level. These include misinformation, hesitancy, accessibility and penetration especially at rural-remote areas of North East. While districts in Nagaland and Meghalaya are working hard to achieve the targets, the system is posed with a number of challenges at different levels. The Government’s vaccination drive in both states needs an impetus with technical and material assistance with stronger community participation to expedite the process of vaccination, especially in low penetration and unreachable areas of the state.
To overcome myths and misinformation causing vaccine hesitancy, and ensure an effective supply chain and last mile reach, ISRN with support of JSI- India will take up the various initiatives under the following objective.
• To support state and district Health departments in strategizing, micro planning, and rapidly rolling out vaccination program to achieve maximum coverage;
• To stimulate demand generation and community mobilisation activities for COVID 19 vaccination uptake.
• To reinforce the capacity of health workers and community outreach workers.
• To motivate private sector providers for COVID 19 vaccination drive for improving accessibility and wider coverage;
• To ensure equitable distribution and focus on the last-mile reach of COVID-19 vaccination for the 18 plus population, including high priority groups and left out beneficiaries.
Eligible candidates interested in the position are requested to apply using the before 10th November 2021.
