The State medical and family welfare department has distributed 12.85 lakhs vaccine doses for 18+ years age category to the districts.

Director of Public Health T.S. Selvavinayagam has instructed deputy directors to vaccinate the priority population/beneficiaries on priority basis.

They have been urged to complete the vaccination in a week.

They have been advised to organise camps covering each category in specified place/time rather than asking them to come to PHC.

“But It should be linked to a nearby PHC for entering their performance,” he has said.

The district health officials have been requested to coordinate through the associations, industrial owners and head of departments to ensure better coordination and coverage and minimal wastage.
