SOP for vaccine drive at the office will be shared by the Practo team
b. Vaccine drive at camps i. Practo can help set up camps where multiple organizations and their employees who have registered can avail COVID vaccination based on their schedule ii.

At partner hospital and clinics i. Practo has partnered with multiple hospitals and clinics where pre-registered corporate employees can come down to their respective centres to get vaccinated as per their schedule. Please note - Inoculation at home is currently on-hold and awaiting clearance from the government.




What is the legal documentation required to engage with Practo for this drive?


a. Practo and the corporate will sign an MOU for the execution of the program b. As COVID vaccination is voluntary, corporates would need to get prior approval from the employees on the same. The employees will have to sign a self-declaration form that states that they are voluntarily getting vaccinated

On the day of the inoculation, Practo will deliver the required quantity to the location in cold storage boxes, maintaining the temperature. c. At the centre, there will be separate rooms for registration, Inoculation and observation d. The inoculation will be done in batches with a minimum of 10 people in a span of 3-4hrs e.

What is the capacity per day for the vaccination?


Practo has a capacity of 50,000 vaccination per day in the top 10 cities (5000 per day per city) and the capacity in the next 5 cities will be updated shortly.




What are the legalities involved in the terms of indemnification and liability in case of adverse events during the vaccination drive?


a. The indemnification will work similarly to the drug manufacturing and distribution scenario where the liability of the drug/vaccine lies with the manufacturer and any claims from the manufacturer with regard to the storing and distribution lies with the distributor, which in this case is Practo. b. However, multiple opinions are doing the rounds in this regard by the manufacturer and Practo. The same will be finalized before we enter the contractual stage, post-approval from the government c. Since this is a voluntary exercise, the liability can also lie with the employee while registering for the vaccination via an end-user agreement and the employer can act as a facilitator
