Civic administration has indefinitely postponed vaccination for 18 years plus age group as State Government has not supplied required doses so far. Mayor Dayashankar Tiwari said that the administration of jabs for 18-44 years age group would resume after getting required directions from the State.
The vaccines for jabs, Covaxin and Covishield are in short supply and now priority is given to finish of second dose of 45-years plus beneficiaries in first stage. State Government hence decided to wrap-up second dose of citizens in 45-years plus age group and diverted the stock received for 18-year plus. Meanwhile on Thursday, NMC is focusing on providing second dose and that would be carried out majority of urban PHCs, Government hospitals and other centres.
