Many return from centres without getting jab

Ludhiana, May 3

Today, vaccination was carried out at only four government session sites where the second dose of Covaxin was administered to people. Vaccination was given at the UPHC, Sunet; UPHC, Model Town; MCH, Vardhman; and Civil Hospital. A huge rush was witnessed at the UPHC, Model Town.

“There is a shortage of vaccine. So, I thought it is better to get vaccinated today. I came from Abdullapur Basti to get the jab from here,” said a beneficiary.

Many people, who were making rounds of private hospitals, have now got vaccinated from government centres. “I was reluctant to go to a government centre after getting my first dose from a private hospital. Most private hospitals also going out of stock. So, I managed to get my second dose from a govenrment centre,” said Harpal Singh of Sarabha Nagar. Many people were seen returning after witnessing boards displaying ‘vaccine out of stock’ outside private and government session sites.

“The contrary, the state is going dry in stock of vaccine, which is unfortunate,” said another resident from Haibowal.—TNS
