The central and state governments have come face to face with the Corona vaccination. Health Minister TS Singhdev has given a befitting reply to the questions of Union Health Minister Harsh Vardhan. Singhdev said that the department has stood on the front of the vaccine which is being made available by the central government in the state. Vaccination in the state has been more than the national coverage.
Earlier, Union Health Minister Dr. Harsh Vardhan had tweeted that some states are demanding introduction of vaccination for people above 18 years of age. This should mean that they have vaccinated all health workers, frontline workers and senior citizens in their respective states. But the facts are completely different.
Singhdev said that about 10 percent of the state’s population has received the first dose of vaccine. The goal of the Health Department is that by the end of this month, 58 lakh 66 thousand 599 people in the age group of 45 years should be protected by giving the first dose. It is 20 percent of the total population.
So far, 25 lakh 25 thousand 833 people of this age group have received the first dose of vaccine. Still some people have various misconceptions in their minds that this will affect fertility or if they are not ill, then why get them put up, or get sick. The World Health Organization, UNICEF, various specialist doctors, the Drug Regulatory Authority of the Government of India are all saying that the vaccine is completely safe.
