Govt may soon organise Covid-19 vaccination sessions at workplaces
The sessions will be organised in offices having 100 eligible and willing beneficiaries by tagging these workplaces with an existing Covid vaccination centre, ANI further reported.
Such workplace vaccination centres may be launched across states/union territories from April 11, according to ANI.
There have been demands to increase the ambit of the Covid-19 vaccine coverage, especially in the wake of resurgence in cases of infection. Several chief ministers have urged the Centre to reduce the age limit for vaccination.
The Indian Medical Association (IMA), meanwhile, has written to Prime Minister Narendra Modi suggesting that vaccination be allowed for all people above the age of 18 years.
“At present, we are vaccinating the population above 45 years. In view of the rapid spread of the second wave of the disease, we suggest that our vaccination strategy be geared up with immediate effect and on war footing,” the IMA said in its letter to PM Modi.
