Shimla: To increase immunity among children and prevent them from diseases, chief minister Sukhvinder Singh Sukhu-led Congress government in Himachal Pradesh has decided that the vaccination programme in the state would now be implemented through the U-WIN portal.
The programme had been running as a pilot project in Solan and Sirmaur districts.
Complete information about maternal and child vaccination in the state will be available on this portal. Solan and Sirmaur districts had been included among the select few districts across the country, under the Centre-sponsored project.
The data of all the vaccination beneficiaries of the state will be available on the portal. Complete information about the vaccination after the birth of the child will be available on this portal.
Earlier, information related to vaccination was available only through an offline medium. This portal is also being linked directly to the labour room, so that correct and accurate information is available. All government and private hospitals are also being linked with the U-WIN portal, said an official.
