Telangana: RWAs launch mobile app to simplify booking vax slots | Hyderabad News – Times of India

HYDERABAD: A new mobile app is set to make booking a slot for Covid vaccine easy. An exclusive mobile app, ‘I-VACCINE’ unveiled by UFERWAS, is available for booking slots by the 18 plus and 45 plus aged residents.

Principal secretary, Industries & Commerce and IT, Jayesh Ranjan, launched it through a virtual meet on Sunday. With this, Telangana has become the first state to get this facility, which was initiated by UFERWAS, an apex body of RWAs, registered with nearly 4,300 residential societies.
Over 1.5 lakh people residing in over 3,000 apartments and gated communities can avail vaccination facility, through this newly introduced app. City-based IT professionals including DSN Murthy, CEO of Dhanush Info Tech Pvt Limited and Uday Shankar Payyeti, associate vice president, Cambay Consulting Services, developed this mobile application for the RWAs.
Speaking on the occasion, IT principal secretary, Jayesh Ranjan, said, “This new mobile app is a user-friendly app and UFERWAS stands as a role model in the country.” Telangana will overcome shortage of vaccines by July. Bharat Biotech has agreed to provide four lakh vaccine doses to us. Importing Sputnik vaccine is also being planned and a clarity on these doses will be known in the next month,” he said.
The Telangana government has tied up with private hospitals in the city, and instructed to organise vaccination camps in different areas rather than in one place.
The state health department has chalked out the massive vaccination drive to ensure every person gets vaccinated. For this, many function halls and auditoriums like Hari Hara Kala Bhavan are being booked, said Ranjan.
The GMR employees working in RGI airport will also be vaccinated on the lines of super spreaders soon, added the IT official. UFERWAS president, Rao VBJ Chelikani explained the objective of the app while general secretary B T Srinivasan briefed about measures to be taken to ensure vaccine drive through RWAs.
