Dear viewers

Me and my team working for COVID-19 vaccination wish to share the following in anticipation of corrective measures. Names except SISIRA   A and phone numbers are hidden for privacy.

We received soft ware generated list of 32 vaccinees who over crossed the due date for 2nd dose.

As per micro-plan guide lines, we maintained session site tally sheet on which vaccinees signatures were also obtained for 100% authenticity, accuracy, data retrieval so that the data is 100% sensitive and 100% specific. From this we verified the data forwarded to us for closing the immunity gap and observed the following and shared with the implementing authorities so that testing team can ‘de-bug’ the soft ware to generate 100% authentic and 100% accurate data to review one of the performance indicators – the “Drop-outs” for social mobilization to close the gap by the programme mangers.

  • Of the 32; 21 (65.63%) migrated to their native place due to lockdown and were unable to access 2nd dose. On coming back to KVG Institution Sullia, they wish to get their 2nd dose.
  • Of the remaining 11; 8 (72.72%) took the 2nd dose on dates mentioned against their names. One person took on 15th June 2021, after receiving the mail. 2nd dose data did not get access in to CoWIN, depicting as overdue for 2nd dose generating spurious “dropout”.
  • Two persons do not want to take as one is too scared of taking the 2nd dose though he had no serious AEFI following first dose, other lady became pregnant. [Sl No. 263 – hesitant & 514 ANC].
  • Serial number 121 & 6100 is double entry: Miss SISIRA  A, age 19 year, 2nd year BSC Nursing student got her first dose on 21-01-2021 and 2nd dose on 26-2-2021. In the e.list, 2nd dose is reflected as first dose and listed her as overdue for the 2nd           
  • No 5974: Navya Unni C got her 1st dose on 22-01-2021 and 2nd dose on 25-02-2021. Data of 1st dose was not conceived and that of 2nd dose on 25th Feb 2021 reflected as that of 1st dose, declaring her as due for the 2nd dose.

Concern / Expectation: Since CoWIN could not absorb all data, it may under report true coverage and inflate the dropout. Vaccinees often find it difficult to get authentic digital certificate. Hope by now the concerned authorities have taken appropriate action for reflecting true coverage to mitigate spurious dropout; maximize authenticity, sensitivity and specificity.

Hoping for rapid improvement as learning is a continuos process, feed back and feedforward will help in positive operational research.

 

Best wishes
