Patiala, July 22
After receiving a fresh stock of 11,000 doses of the Covid vaccine, the Patiala Health Department held a mega vaccination drive today. The drive will continue tomorrow also.
The Health Department said the drive included vaccination camps at 100 sites, including villages. The Health Department could hold vaccination at only limited sites over the past few days due to a shortage of vaccines.
Patiala Civil Surgeon Dr Prince Sodhi said: “Beneficiaries should not ignore the booster dose. It is very important to get both shots for better protection from Covid.”
Sodhi said they would hold camps, apart from various health centres, in villages, wards and towns.
He said only people, who have completed 84 days after the first dose, should visit the vaccination camps for the second dose. Meanwhile, Dr Veenu Goyal, District Immunisation Officer, said: “The expectant mothers should also get Covid vaccine as it has already been declared safe for them.”
Five positive cases
The Patiala Health Department reported five positive cases over the past 24 hours. Fresh positive cases were reported from Bhadson, Harpalpur and Patiala city. Meanwhile, the district reported one Covid death on Wednesday. With this, the total death count in the district stands at 1,337.
