Bhubaneswar, May 8: Odisha government has decided to prioritize vaccination of people in the 18-44 age group in the municipal corporations of Bhubaneswar, Cuttack, Rourkela, Sambalpur and Berhampur for the time being.
The decision was taken as test positivity ratio (TPR) rate is high in those places. Additional Chief Secretary of Health, P.K Mohapatra has written to commissioners of these corporations to start vaccination process.
Mohapatra said that vaccination of people in the 18-44 age group will be started in other areas of the state once the vaccine supply improves. The vaccination for the age group will be carried out between 10AM and 1PM.
Mohapatra has also asked to segregate and record the vaccine stock (central supply and state supply) and its utilization.
