*Bengaluru – March 4, 2021*: The government will discuss the availability of Covid vaccines in PHCs and community Health Centres for speedy vaccination of senior citizens, says Health & Medical Education Minister Dr.K.Sudhakar.
At present Covid vaccine is being administered at Taluk hospitals, we are considering to extend the service to PHCs and CHCs so that more and more public can get the vaccine at the earliest. He added.
Persons above the age of 60 and persons above 45 years with comorbidities are given priority as of now. We are also boosting the morale of the senior citizens to get the vaccine voluntarily. People will be benefitted by this. In case a vaccinated person gets infected, the effect will be minimal. We are hopeful that more and more people will be vaccinated in the future. Said the Minister.
PM Narendra Modi has also taken the Made in India Vaccine. Therefore there is no doubt in the performance of the vaccine and everybody can get the vaccine. No adverse effect is reported so far said Dr.Sudhakar. Considering the infrastructure in private hospitals, the permission for vaccine will be given as per the central government guidelines, he added.
