Hoshiarpur, November 22

Hoshiarpur Deputy Commissioner Apneet Riyait on Monday directed officials of all government departments in the district to ensure 100 per cent Covid-19 vaccination of all government employees whether they are regular or contractual or on outsourced basis. The DC said salaries of those employees or officials, who have not got themselves vaccinated, will also be withheld for which instructions were being given in writing to the District Treasury Officer.

She was addressing a meeting of the District Task Force on Covid-19 vaccination at the district administrative complex here today. During the meeting, the DC directed the heads of all departments to ensure that the Covid-19 immunisation certificates of all employees working in his office be forwarded to the office of the Additional Deputy Commissioner by Wednesday and mention the number of first and second dose of the Covid-19 vaccines administered to the employees.

She said it was important to get both doses of vaccines, so each and every one should the second dose administered and motivate others as well. He said if any health problem of an employee prevents him from getting vaccinated, then he should submit a doctor’s certificate for it. Such certificates would be checked by a panel of doctors and appropriate action would be taken.

The DC said so far 16,42,857 doses of Covid-19 vaccine have been administered to the beneficiaries in the district, including 10,15,668 first and 6,27,189 second doses.

So far 85 per cent eligible beneficiaries have taken the first dose of Covid-19 vaccine and 53 per cent beneficiaries have taken the second dose.
