Telangana govt Partners With IIT-Hyderabad start-up Vaccine On Wheels.

Hyderabad: In a bid to complete vaccination of all marginalised sections in the state, the Telangana government has partnered with IIT-Hyderabad start-up Vaccine-On-Wheels. Under the arrangement, fifty mobile vaccination clinics will reach out to those who are in the periphery zone.

Vaccine-On-Wheels creates hospital-like sterile setups near communities to provide vaccination services. This is a Community based Mobile Vaccination Clinic which will help India in targeting higher inoculation penetration by getting quick acceptance towards inoculation, giving higher convenience with reduced cost of seeking service with zero travel cost, zero travel time, lost wages, and so on, an IITH statement said. To cut inequality and increase immunization penetration, VaccineOn-Wheels takes vaccination facility near to the community, giving higher convenience while ensuring access to all economic strata.

Commenting on the development, Prof B.Murty, Director IIT Hyderabad, said, “The innovative and first-of-its-kind approach by VaccineOnWheels to vaccinate India’s “unreached population” is need of the hour for both Covid-19 & Non-Covid-19 vaccination. Vaccine-On-Wheels and team have already saved more than two lakh lives and will indeed save millions in the coming months.”

Under the unique Public-private partnership, vaccination is administered free of cost for beneficiaries with vaccines provided by the Government and vaccination is administered by VaccinOnWheels.
