It will take ten more months for state to get fully vaccinated

The pace of corona vaccination in the state is very slow. Every day about 35 thousand people are getting vaccinated. If the pace of vaccination is not increased and these conditions persist, it may take seven months for people to get the first dose. At the same time, it will take about ten more months to complete both doses of the vaccine. According to the Health Bulletin of the Health Department, the first dose of the vaccine has been administered to about 25 lakh people in the state. About 6 lakh people have taken both doses so far. In this, the first dose has been given to 19 lakhs people above 45 years group, and the second dose to 5 lakhs people in this group. Starting from May 10, 6 lakh people in the age group of 18 to 44 years have been given the first dose. At the same time, the second dose has been given to 23 thousand people in this group.

10.5 lakh people will be able to get the vaccine in a month

These days an average of 35 thousand people are being vaccinated daily. In such a situation, 10.5 lakh people will be able to get the vaccine every month. The total population of Uttarakhand is about 1 crore 11 lakhs. Now 24 lakhs have got the first dose and 5 lakhs have got the second dose and 71 lakh people are left.By this rate, it will take around 10 more months for the state to get fully vaccinated provided everything will run smooth.

We plan to do the vaccination according to the cluster. We are also likely to get a good number of vaccines. This will speed up the vaccination said Dr. Ajay Sharma, District Immunization Officer
