The Indian Medical Association (IMA) in a letter to the Prime Minister on 29th November states to effectively use its trained manpower of more than 3 lakhs who are qualified modern medicine doctor for the COVID-19 inoculation program of the government, once a vaccine is available. Their services would be voluntary and free of charge.

The vaccines will have to be provided according to cold chain conditions along with disposables. This will be a force amplifier for the vaccination program and substantially increase the number of outlets available for people, the doctor's body said.

Asserting that the IMA has 1,750 branches spread over all the districts of the country, the doctors' body said an effective top-down command and control is in place with 28 state branches.

Most of the members have a small team of nurses while a large number of small and medium hospitals and nursing homes in sub-district towns are run by IMA members. Such practitioners are available even in remote, hilly districts and have taken part in the pulse polio vaccination drive and many such government welfare programs.

The IMA will work with the government with full zeal and strength at all levels to implement the program on a war footing so as to reach each and every citizen of the country at the earliest.
