Minister of State for Health Ashwini Kumar Choubey has said that Corona warriors will be the first ones to get the vaccine after its launch. He said, three Corona vaccines are at various stages of testing and scientists are working hard for their success.

Mr Choubey hailed the National Digital Health Mission unveiled by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in his address to the nation on Independence Day. The minister said, this is a historic decision for the country’s health sector and will bring widespread change in the field of health.

Mr Modi unveiled the ambitious National Digital Health Mission under which every Indian will get a health ID that will ease access to medical services. The card will carry the medical history of the patient, and a doctor will be able to access prior information on ailments and treatment, if any, and begin treatment.

The Prime Minister also announced that the country has made plans for mass-producing COVID-19 vaccine once scientists give a green signal. Mr Modi said the country has prepared a roadmap to ensure that a COVID-19 vaccine reaches everyone in the shortest possible time.
