The vaccine career is also available in these centres. These facilities are available in every ‘panchayat’ of the state, with the help of which the field staff of the Health Department, can now go to every house in the state and vaccinate the eligible people and while doing so they can also find out how many members of that family got vaccinated, how many people got infected and what is the actual status of Infection.”
