Covid19 Vaccine will not be limited to unique digital health IDs. That is, digital health ID will not be mandatory for vaccination. The Union Health Ministry has said this clearly. As the need for coronavirus vaccination is increasing in the country, people are concerned that vaccination should not be limited to only those who have a digital health ID under the National Digital Health Mission (NDHM).
According to the report of Indian Express, in the weekly briefing on COVID 19, the Union Health Secretary Rajesh Bhushan has assured that many IDs will be used for vaccination so that no one is left untouched by vaccination.
PM Modi has said that the government is preparing a systematic system for the delivery of the vaccine. He also mentioned this during his address to the nation on 20 October. PM Modi says that digital health ID and digital network together will ensure that citizens are protected from the epidemic.
Which ID will work, the list will be released
Bhushan has also said that the digital ecosystem being prepared under NDHM is not making it mandatory for everyone to have a digital health ID. This is why Health ID is not mandatory for vaccination. In case of people who do not have any health ID, digital ID will be used. He says that the process of vaccination will be almost like an electoral environment, where many IDs can be used. A list of fixed IDs will be issued so that no one remains untouched by vaccination.
What is Digital Health ID
The National Digital Health Mission was announced by Prime Minister Narendra Modi (Narendra Modi) in his Independence Day address. According to the program, every person registered under the mission will get a digital health ID, which will make it easier to access medical services. Whenever an Indian goes to a doctor or drugstore, all the information will remain in the health ID. Everything will be available on your health profile, from doctor’s appointment to medical advice.
This health ID will contain all your information, information about each disease, which doctor gave you which medicine, when, what were your reports, all this information. Health ID facility has already started in Chandigarh, Ladakh, Andaman and Nicobar Islands, Puducherry, Dadra and Nagar Haveli, Daman and Diu and Lakshadweep.
