Odisha: Third phase of covid-19 vaccination to begin tomorrow

In Odisha, the third phase of covid-19 vaccination will begin from tomorrow in all government hospitals across the state capital Bhubaneswar. However, only registered persons can avail this benefit. Meanwhile, as a symbolic measure Odisha Government conducted a trial vaccination of 96 people of the age group of 18 to 44 years in only one session site in Bhubaneswar yesterday.

AIR correspondent reports, while people over 45 years will continue to be vaccinated across the state from tomorrow, post the weekend shutdown, those in the age bracket of 18 to 44 years can have the vaccine shots only within the municipal limits of capital Bhubaneswar as for now.

On the other hand, even as the state battles the unruly virus that has infected a record 10 thousand plus people in a single day yesterday, Odisha too has been helping out other states battling oxygen scarcity. During the last 9 days, about 3,500 metric tons of medical oxygen have been dispatched from Odisha in 183 tankers to as many as eight States.
