Odisha government will set up separate vaccination sites in districts & towns for people who do not have approved identity cards, but are eligible for COVID-19 vaccination. Steps will be taken to facilitate vaccination of such vulnerable groups who do not have the prescribed identity proofs required for registration on CoWIN portal. A special drive for inoculation will be conducted for such vulnerable groups. Separate vaccination sites will be set up for eligible persons who do not possess any of the seven approved documents such as Aadhaar card, voter card, passport, driving licence, PAN card, pension card with photo, and NPR smart card. This decision comes after reports of some vulnerable groups being left out of the vaccination drive for not possessing any of the prescribed identity proofs. According to sources, people to be made part of the special vaccination drive include nomads, sadhus and saints, prisoners, inmates of mental health institutions, and rehabilitation centres/camps, residents of old age homes, roadside beggars, and any other identified eligible persons aged 18 years or more.
