Dharwad dist gears up to vaccinate children in 12-14 age group

The district administration is all geared up for the Covid vaccination of children in the 12-14 years group starting Wednesday (March 16).

According to Dr. BC Karigoudar, District Health Officer, the Health and Family Welfare department has identified 72,695 children in this age group who will receive the Corbevax vaccine manufactured by Hyderabad-based Biological E Ltd. The numbers will keep on increasing increase as days pass, he said.

He stated that they had received 45,000 doses of the vaccine. The drive will be launched in the district at the Dharwad District Hospital, where approximately 20 children will receive their first shots. Dr. Karigoudar stated that it would be administered intramuscularly.

He stated that the government has lifted the co-morbidity condition for persons aged 60 and above to receive preventive dosages of the COVID vaccine. They can also go to their nearest health care centre to get their dose, he said.

The guidelines suggested that all beneficiaries born in 2010 or earlier – those who have attained the age of 12 years, will be able to register on CoWIN.
