How this works?
With the help of the eVIN application, those who monitor the storage have to update the information about the net utilisation of each vaccine in standardised registers at the end of every immunisation day. Temperature data is recorded and updated every 60 minutes on the server via General Packet Radio Service. The difference in temperature is communicated by sending an alarm through a mail or SMS.
The programme was launched by the Centre in 2015. It was rolled out across 12 states in 371 districts, including Assam, Bihar, Gujarat, Chattisgarh, Himachal Pradesh, Jharkhand, Madhya Pradesh, Manipur, Nagaland, Odisha, Rajasthan, and Uttar Pradesh. The government is extending the programme across Andhra Pradesh, Goa, Karnataka, Maharashtra, Telangana and Uttarakhand.
