The second Covid vaccine dose for those who took the first shot on Day 1 of inoculation drive on January 16, will be administered on February 13, the government has said. The Centre also said while the country has made remarkable progress in terms of the number of people vaccinated, there is room for improvement in the number of average vaccinations per session.
While 12 states and Union Territories achieved 60 per cent or more vaccination coverage of healthcare workers, they were all advised to “improve the percentage coverage of vaccinated beneficiaries,” a statement from the government read.
“Every State/UT must schedule all healthcare workers for vaccination at least once before 20th Feb 2021 and immediately thereafter organize mop-up rounds for them. Similarly, all frontline workers must be scheduled for vaccination at least once before 6th March 2021 and immediately thereafter organize mop-up rounds for them,” the statement read.
