The flight crew should be properly trained on the hazards and risks of the vaccine's transportation.

Dry ice transforms into carbon dioxide gas at temperatures higher than -78 degrees Celsius under normal atmospheric pressure and, therefore, it is classified as "dangerous goods" by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), it said. The objective of this dry run was rehearsal of the actual vaccine administration process.

"The Cabinet Committee has made a decision to initially purchase 1.2 million doses of the vaccine from the Chinese company Sinopharm, which will be provided free of cost to frontline workers in the first quarter of 2021", the science minister said on Twitter. He is scheduled to visit Session Site at government Omandurar hospital in Chennai, vaccination centre at Apollo hospital in Chennai, and vaccination centre in Chengalpattu, Chennai.

He said the Integrated Vaccine Complex of HLL Biotech Limited (HBL), which has remained non-functional for six months, would soon be optimally utilised to produce Covid-19 vaccines.

HBL is a 100% subsidiary of HLL Lifecare Limited, a government of India Enterprise under the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare. This milestone entails the need for testing of all planned mechanisms for conducting the vaccination drive in the country. Short for Covid Vaccine Intelligence Network, CoWIN is a digital platform to roll out and scale up the vaccination drive.

"The PTI-led federal government has reported that it will take time for the coronavirus vaccine to arrive", Dr Pechuho said, adding that it was earlier announced that the drug would be available after January 15.

Speaking as the chief guest at a press conference on Tuesday, Union Health Secretary Rajesh Bhushan said there were four primary coronary vaccine stores in the country. The dry run also familiarized the State, District, Block and Hospital level officers in all aspects of COVID-19 vaccination.

Punjab on Friday conducted a second dry run for the Covid-19 vaccination roll-out at three sites - district hospital, private health facility and health centre in rural area- in each district.

The drill is being conducted to ensure efficient planning and management for vaccine delivery in each district of all states and UTs across the country, Indian health ministry sources said. "State is equipped enough to administer 4 lakh doses of vaccine per day", informed the minister.

"We have registered 6.30 lakh healthcare professionals in Karnataka till date".
