Panchkula, April 1

As many as 1,476 persons, aged between 45 and 59, including those with comorbidities, were administered the first dose of the Covid vaccine at 35 sites here today. A total of 3,053 beneficiaries received the vaccine today.

In the daily bulletin, there was no specification on how many persons aged between 45 and 59 without comorbidities got the vaccine.

While speaking on the response of the first day of the third phase, District Immunisation Officer Dr Meenu Sasan said the scope for improvement was still there as awareness drives could lead to high turnout among those eligible for vaccination.

“Even today many people did not have information that the government has allowed vaccination for all above the age of 45,” she said.

BJP national spokesperson Nalin Kohli also received the Covid vaccine at the community centre in Sector 12-A. Over 67K doses of coronavirus vaccine have been administered in the district so far.
