Patiala, September 28

With 6,609 beneficiaries inoculated today, the vaccination figure has already crossed the 13-lakh mark in the district. Around 1 lakh beneficiaries have been vaccinated over the past week. The district health authorities have administered around 13.08 lakh vaccine doses in the district so far.

Of 13.08 lakh, 9.73 have received the first dose while 3.34 lakh beneficiaries have received both the doses of vaccine.

Patiala Civil Surgeon Dr Prince Sodhi informed that they had started vaccination of physically challenged beneficiaries at their homes only.

Sodhi said, “More than 4 lakh people have already been vaccinated in September alone. Health workers have been doing what they can to vaccinate as many beneficiaries as possible to stave off the third wave.”

He added that beneficiaries – who have received the first dose – should get their second dose immediately after completing the gap window.
