The District Collector was entrusted with the task force at the block level as well as the district to conduct a dry run. Special teams were formed by the district administration for various tasks.

The field feedback of the first day of the dry run was reviewed by the Joint Secretary (Public Health) through video conferencing with state and district program officials on Tuesday.

In this two-day rehearsal, necessary arrangements for vaccination of Kovid-19 are being reviewed and efforts are being made to remove any lacunae before starting the actual vaccination.
