The Health Ministry on Thursday said its advisory to states to obtain permission before sharing eVIN data on vaccine stocks and temperature of storage is to prevent any misuse of this information by various agencies for commercial purposes.

The ministry issued a clarification in the backdrop of circular issued to the states and UTs, advising them not to share data of the Electronic Vaccine Intelligence Network (eVIN) system on vaccine stocks and the temperature of vaccine storage at public forums without prior consent. The ministry said it is “sensitive information” that is to be “used only for programme improvement”.
