Karnataka Deputy Chief Minister with Higher Education portfolio Dr. Ashwatha Narayana has tweeted that offline classes for college students will begin only after the completion of the first dose of vaccination for the students in July. Speaking to media persons in Bengaluru today, the minister said that teaching staff, non teaching staff and all students above the age of 18 will be administered vaccines in July.
Dr. Ashwatha Narayana has said that inoculation campaigns will be arranged in the colleges and students will be inoculated based on validation by the respective institutions. Meanwhile the state Health Minister Dr. K Sudhakar has said that vaccines are the only solution for Corona. He urged people not to believe rumours about vaccines in social media and believe the government sources.
He emphasised that we must be proud that two vaccines are made available within the country. Foreign vaccines are expensive but the Prime Minister is providing indigenous vaccines at no cost to everyone.
