Tirunelveli: The corona epidemic is increasing day by day in Tirunelveli district. This has made the public interested in getting vaccinated, but the shortage of vaccination has made it impossible for everyone to get vaccinated immediately.
In particular, due to severe shortage of Covaxine vaccine, they are walking to hospitals every day without being able to pay the second installment. The vaccination of people above 18 years of age started two days ago.
Accordingly, 35,500 ‘Covishield’ vaccines and 5,500 ‘Covaxine’ vaccines have been received by the District Health Department from Chennai to Cuddalore.
A health department official said, “So far, 1.77 lakh people have been vaccinated in Tirunelveli district. At present, 41,000 doses have been received for 18 to 45 years of age.
There is a delay in vaccination due to lack of guidelines for this. Hence, steps are being taken to immunize all parties as additional vaccinations are coming soon.”
