Health Minister Veena George has said that the state has received 14,25,150 doses of the Covidshield vaccine. Thiruvananthapuram 3,27,810. The vaccine was available in Ernakulam 8,38,130 and Kozhikode 2,59 and 210. The available vaccine is being dispensed in extraordinary districts. The Minister of Health said that vaccination will be strengthened once the vaccine arrives.
The first dose of vaccination in the state is approaching 80 percent. About 79.5 percent of the population who need to be vaccinated have been given one dose of vaccine (2,28,18,901) and 31.52 percent have been given two doses of vaccine (90,51,085), the health minister said. A total of over three crores (3,18,69,986) doses of the vaccine were administered, including one and two doses.
The health minister said the government was working to make the vaccine available to everyone over the age of 18 by the end of this month and that college students who had not been vaccinated should contact health workers as soon as possible.
Those who are still reluctant to be vaccinated should be vaccinated as soon as possible. Covid vaccines protect against infection and serious illness and significantly reduce the risk of hospitalization and death. In June, July, and August, only 6% of people who received a single dose of the Covid vaccine and 3.6 percent of those who took the Covid vaccine had Covid. This suggests that post-vaccination immunizations are effective in preventing infections, but that people who have been vaccinated may be infected at least in small amounts. Therefore, people with related diseases should take precautionary measures to prevent the disease, the health minister said.
