Dr Sudhakar K Minister for Health & Family Welfare and Medical Education, GoK in a series of tweets has thrown light on the vaccination drive for 18-44 age group.
Covid-19 vaccination will be provided for citizens aged between 18 to 44 years at KC General Hospital, Jayanagar General Hospital, Sir C.V.Raman General Hospital, Government Medical Colleges, ESI Hospitals and NIMHANS from Monday, 10th May.
In other districts, initially, vaccination will be provided at District Hospitals, Government Medical Colleges and all Taluka Hospitals. The number of vaccination centers will be increased as and when more vaccines will become available. The date would be announced.
All Vaccination Centres providing vaccination for this age group 18 to 44 will have an exclusive session site earmarked for them. Vaccination will be provided to only those who have registered and scheduled an appointment on the Co-win portal and walk-ins will not be allowed.
The government is leaving no stone unturned to vaccinate each and every citizen at the earliest and is making continuous efforts to secure the supply of vaccines. I urge all citizens, especially my young friends, to wait for your turn and govt will ensure you will surely get your jab.
In the order placed by Karnataka Govt to procure 2 crore doses of Covishield, we received 3.5 lakh doses on Saturday night taking the total delivery to 6.5 lakh doses. So far GoI has supplied 1,10,49,470 doses including 99,58,190 doses of Covishield & 10,91,280 doses of Covaxin.
