Ayodhya. The campaign for rapid vaccination before a possible third wave of corona infection is being affected continuously due to the lack of vaccine. Due to non-availability of vaccine in sufficient quantity from the government, the pace of the campaign is being braked. Due to lack of vaccine, even 40 sessions running in the routine could not be conducted on Friday. Barely 17 booths could get the vaccine. Due to this many people also had to return to Barang. The population of the district at present is about 29 lakhs. These include about 18.5 lakh people above the age of 18, according to government figures. Experts are predicting the possibility of a third wave of corona coming. To save the general public, vaccination has been started with vigor in the district from the month of January itself. After protecting health workers, frontline workers from the vaccine in a phased manner, at present people above 18 years of age are being vaccinated. For this, vaccination is being done regularly at 40 booths including all district level hospitals as well as urban primary health centres, CHCs, PHCs etc. Apart from this, under the pilot project of the Chief Minister, a system was made to vaccinate the villagers by making clusters block wise, but due to non-supply of vaccine in the district in sufficient quantity, the campaign is getting braked and the target is getting delayed. Is. Under the campaign, a target of about 11 thousand per day is set for vaccination at only 40 booths. For this also about 10 thousand doses are required per day. Whereas under the pilot project the requirement for expanding the campaign becomes more than two times. These days the supply of vaccine is around five thousand. Due to this, far from starting the vaccination program by setting up camps in rural areas, even normal vaccination is not being done at 40 booths. Due to this lack of vaccine, due to the slowness in the vaccination campaign, at present only about five lakh people have been vaccinated against the target of 18.5 lakh. Only five thousand doses of vaccine had been received in the district a day earlier. Which was sent to the respective health centers. Still, the vaccine could be made available only at 17 booths, where vaccination was done on Friday. There was silence in the remaining 23 booths on Friday. When people came from far and wide in the hope of getting the vaccine vaccinated at the booths, there was only disappointment. They were returned citing lack of vaccine doses. At the same time, vaccination being done in four development block areas under the pilot project could not even start. Even now, the departmental officials are not able to give clear information about improving the situation. Vaccine is not getting enough from the government. Only thousand doses of vaccine have been received on Thursday. As far as possible, made available. Vaccination was done in only 17 sessions instead of 40 sessions due to lack of vaccine. Once there is sufficient availability, the campaign will be further intensified.-Dr. Ajay Raja, CMO, Ayodhya
