Patiala, May 15

The vaccination drive here got a major boost with 7,000 beneficiaries, aged between 18 and 45, getting vaccinated in a single day today.

Long queues were witnessed at various vaccination centres. However, social distancing norms at some places went for a toss.

Due to shortage of vaccines, the Health Department though has not been inoculating beneficiaries above 45 years for the past two days.

The Health Department said they would not carry out vaccination for beneficiaries aged above 45 owing to the limited stock.

The department clarified that beneficiaries above 45 were being vaccinated from the doses of central pool while those above 18 years were vaccinated from the state pool of vaccines.

Meanwhile, Dr Manjit Singh, Director, Punjab Health Systems Corporation, today inspected the vaccination camp at Radha Soami Satsang Beas.

He also held a meeting with the Patiala Civil Surgeon and other health officials.

After reviewing the Covid related preparedness, Dr Manjit Singh expressed satisfaction and praised healthcare workers for their hard work.
