Patiala, August 1
As many as 12,024 doses of the Covid vaccine were administered to beneficiaries by the Patiala Health Department here today. The vaccination count in the district now stands at 6.25 lakh.
The department said they had set a target of 11,400 doses for the mega drive. However, they went well beyond the target.
The Civil Surgeon, Dr Prince Sodhi, said the vaccination drive in the district was going on smoothly, and the department was getting an overwhelming response from beneficiaries.
He said: “To prevent the third wave of coronavirus, a maximum vaccination of the target population is very important. The response from beneficiaries is also good.”
Meanwhile, a few beneficiaries complained that they were not receiving vaccination confirmation on their mobile phones. However, health officials told The Tribune that there was some issue with the online portal. At some places, uploading the information was a bit of a problem for some time.
One of the beneficiaries said: “I received vaccine on Friday but I am yet to receive confirmation on my registered mobile phone.”
