Covid vaccination centres expanded in Punjab

Chandigarh:  To speed up the vaccination drive, Punjab Health Minister Balbir Singh Sidhu on Sunday said the Covid-19 vaccine would be administered at all health and wellness centres and sub-centres, as well as homeopathy and ayurvedic dispensaries.

He said nearly seven lakh people the state have been vaccinated so far.

All civil surgeons have been instructed to implement the guidelines as soon as possible so that the vaccination process can be expedited in such centres and maximum eligible persons be covered under drive, he added.

Sidhu said the Central government has launched two Covid-19 vaccines — Covishield and Covaxin — in the country and both are safe.
