In light of the current situation, the Indian Government has requested the participation of private companies to speed up the process of vaccination across the country.

PharmEasy boasts of a considerable presence across India, with over 80,000 partner retailers, 5,000 doctors and a state-of-the-art pharma supply chain facility. The company has now decided to vaccinate over 3 crore families via 5,000 partner centres, across India in the next few months.

PharmEasy will release the timeline for the start of the vaccination drive, based on the availability of vaccines and guidelines provided by GOI which is set to be announced soon. Once the company procures the doses of the vaccine, it will reach out to registered individuals and assist them with vaccination slots at camps set up in their locality.
