Jalandhar, March 2
Technical glitches continued to trouble health workers as well as senior citizens, who had arrived at various vaccination centres in large numbers, on the second day of the second vaccination phase. Owing to the amplified awareness on the drive, people above 60 years of age started queuing up at the district Civil Hospital since morning.

As around 11 vaccination centres have been created in the district to jab doses of Covidshield to people above 60 and the 45-59 age group with comorbidities, as many as 143 seniors received doses on Tuesday.
District Immunisation Officer Dr Rakesh Chopra said: “Due to technical glitches in the portal, some problem related to registration continued on Day 2. However, after 1 pm, the server was working smoothly. Moreover, apart from one private hospital, no other private hospital could welcome beneficiaries of the second phase. Due to portal problems, we don’t have the exact number of new phase patients reporting and private hospitals were also making arrangements for installation of new server. They were reportedly training their staff before kicking off the second phase.”
At the Jalandhar Civil hospital, 200 people, including health workers and frontline workers, got vaccinated on Tuesday. At least 20 private hospitals are expected to start operation from tomorrow.
