The persons who have completed 15 days after getting second dose of Covid19 vaccine may be allowed to move out and carry out some essential work. The possibility of such persons getting infection is very low, 0.03 to 0.04 per cent. This would ensure continuation of certain activities and prevent socio-economic loss to some extent.
The suggestion has been made by Microbiologist Society, India, through a letter addressed to Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The observation of persons less vulnerable to Corona infection was recorded in Delhi.
The Society has also stated that such persons, who have taken second dose, may be encouraged to work by providing details about their immunity. Such a step can also act as incentive to others to opt for vaccination at the earliest.
The Society has also suggested that arrangements to administer vaccine doses should be made at all polling booths. This would prevent over crowding at vaccination centers.
It has been reported that many got the infection at vaccination centers, due to over crowding. The Covid-19 protocol is not followed properly at these centres. Only that the Government will have to ensure adequate supply of vaccine doses. The vaccination camp can also be held at big residential societies.
Managing cold chain for the vaccine is another issue to deal with by the health machinery.
As imposing lockdown beyond a certain period is not the solution, the suggestion may be considered seriously. Strategies for its implementation may be worked out.
The Society President Dr Arvind Deshmukh has warned that mismanagement at vaccination centers is unpardonable. These centres are becoming places of spreader of the dreaded virus. Strict steps should be taken to prevent this spread of infection. Otherwise even the efforts to administer vaccines may fail. Those infected are not given vaccines immediately.
