Odisha Govt Sets New Vaccination Target Of 4 Lakh Doses Daily

Bhubaneswar: 10/9/21:To expedite the administration of COVID-19 vaccines to all eligible beneficiaries, the State Government has revised the daily vaccination target to 4 lakh. The daily target was revised on the account of feedback from Collectors and expected vaccine supply from the Union Health Ministry, said Additional Chief Secretary (Health), PK Mohapatra.

To meet the new target, the Health Department has urged all-district teams to ramp up their Covid vaccination programme. In another major decision, the Health Department has permitted districts to borrow syringes for vaccination from the Odisha State Medical Corporation Limited (OSMCL).

“While the Union Health Ministry supplies all syringes for the Covid vaccination programme, it is seen that the vaccine supply is made earlier than the syringe supply, causing a temporary shortage of syringes,” Mohapatra stated.

“To address this issue, all districts are allowed to borrow required syringes (0.5ml / 1 ml / 2 ml) from the State (OSMCL) supply (meant for patients) and temporarily divert the same for Covid vaccination. Once MoHFW syringe supplies reach, the same can be recouped,” he added.
