Sub: – CGHS dispensaries/wellness centres as vaccination Centres- Reg:
CGHS have presently more than 100 dispensaries/wellness centres in the country. Most of these centres are located either in the residential colonies of the Central Government employees or nearby places. The vaccination against covid 19 is likely to pick up momentum by the end of this month and since the third phase of vaccination covers all citizens beyond the age of 18, it is likely to increase pressure at the primary health centres and the Government hospitals. Moreover, the present arrangements make it necessary for the employees to commute long distance and it has become difficult due to the declaration of certain areas as containment zones or due to lock down.
We may, therefore, suggest that the CGHS dispensaries/wellness centres might be got notified as Vaccination Centres for covid 19 so that the Central Government employees and their family members shall have the facility of getting vaccinated at a place nearby their homes.
We shall be grateful if you will consider our above suggestion and take necessary steps to make the CGHS dispensaries/wellness centres as vaccine centres.
