As per the Odisha Health & Family Welfare department, the vaccination drive will be undertaken for those who have not received their second or precaution dose. Moreover, the drive will be for Covishield vaccine only.
The vaccination drive will be carried out at specific Primary Health Centres (PHCs), Community Health Centres (CHCs) and District Headquarters Hospitals (DHHs) across Odisha.
Taking to twitter, the State Health and Family Welfare Department wrote: “Under the National COVID19 vaccination programme, Covishield will be available from 19th Jan 2023 in identified DHH, SDH,CHC & PHC across Odisha for beneficiaries whose 2nd dose as well as precaution dose are due. Citizens are requested to take this opportunity to get vaccinated & stay safe from COVID19.”
Health expert Narayan Mishra said, “Covishield vaccines are amply available in Odisha market. Approximately 40 per cent people are yet to take the precaution dose. Similarly, 10 per cent people have not received their second dose. Most importantly, those who had received Covaxin can also take Covishield vaccines. It has no negative impact. According to a research done recently, Covishield is better than Covaxin because the former boosts immunity power. It is absolutely safe.”
