Vaccines are being administered less than capacity
The vaccination drive is proceeding at a slow pace. Due to weakness in management, the health directorate is not being able to put that capacity to use. Public health experts say, the number of vaccines being given daily must be increased if a larger part of the population is to be covered by the vaccination drive.
On Sunday, over 200,000 persons all over the country received their first jab. And 3194 were given their second jab. Officials of the Directorate General Health Services (DGHS)’s Expanded Programme on Immunisation (EPI) said that when a larger number of vaccines are on hand, the pace of the vaccination drive will increase. There are considerations for setting up vaccination centres at a union level and below.
