Over 80K Teenagers Take Covid Vax Jab In Odisha On 1st Day


A total of 80,129 teenagers were administered the first dose of vaccine against Covid-19 in Odisha on the first day of vaccination as per the official reports,

On January 3, the vaccination process for aged 15 to 18 years started off and around 80,129 teenagers took their first jab. As per the Health Department officials, the beneficiaries have taken the first dose of vaccine at 939 dedicated vaccination centres set up across the state. Only the Covaxin vaccine has been given to those who are in the 15-18 age group.

According to the official reports, a total of 23.65 lakh children in Odisha are eligible for a vaccination against Covid-19. Health and family welfare director, Bijay Panigrahi stated that individuals in the 15-18 age group, who have not registered themselves online on the Cowin portal for the vaccination, have also been allowed to get the jab by doing on-spot registration at the centre. There is a possibility that some teenagers might have a fever like minor AEFI, so the state government has decided not to vaccinate the children, who are having examinations now and they will be vaccinated after completion of the tests.
