The third dose of Kovid Wax was injected over 1 million

A third dose of one Kovid-19 vaccine was injected into at least one million health and senior workers and senior citizens with comorbidities as the center released what are called precautionary doses on Monday.

According to data available on the CoWIN dashboard, the country administered 1,051,456 third-dose doses to eligible people, with the maximum (179,339) doses given at 1 p.m. Approximately 315,000 doses were given to senior citizens with comorbidities.

People familiar with the developments said that the vaccination process went smoothly without any major problems.

“The day went very smoothly as far as the Covin system is concerned; Nothing significant was brought to our attention. Our system is very powerful and designed to carry the kind of load expected in a country like ours. It was a good day, ”said RS Sharma, Chief Executive Officer, National Health Authority, which oversees the operation of the CoWIN portal.

Third doses are part of the government’s next step on corona virus vaccination, which comes at a time when the country is in the grip of a third wave, the highly transmissible omiciron variant. On December 25, Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced the third dose to all health and leading workers as citizens with comorbidities aged 60 and over are at higher risk of developing serious illness. Relevant groups will be allowed to take the third dose only if the second dose was taken nine months ago.

20,000 precautionary doses were given to approximately 300,000 eligible beneficiaries in the national capital.

A senior official of the Delhi Health Department said that messages were sent across the country urging senior citizens who had completed nine months after the second dose of the immunization to take their precautionary doses. Additional staff have been deployed at several vaccination centers in the city to assist senior citizens with their concerns and assist them in the process.

According to the Central Government guidelines, the third shot of Kovid Wax will be taken at a different center than the previous one, but the same dose of the first two.

“Offers complete portability. Mobility is not regulated across vaccination centers. Mixing vaccines is not recommended, so there is no provision, ”Additional Secretary (Health) Vikas Sheel said on Twitter about the precautionary dose process.

Sheel explained that health care workers and veterans who have been vaccinated under the general category can upload their employment certificates to CoWIN and be tagged in the appropriate category for receiving the third dose.

Meanwhile, during a review with some states on Monday, Union Health Minister Mansukh Mandav stressed on the need to give precautionary doses to the identified sections and urged the states to ensure full coverage of the vulnerable population as soon as possible.

For the convenience of the beneficiaries, the timing of vaccination at Kovid Vaccination Centers should be relaxed.
