Bhuabneswar, Feb 15: The Odisha government has extended the timeline of the first dose vaccination of Covid-19 for remaining healthcare workers in the state till February 25 for the second time.

The first phase vaccination was supposed to end on February 10, but only 80 per cent of the frontline workers turned up for vaccination following which the state government had extended the timeline till February 13.

The deadline for the first phase has been extended for the second time as the districts failed to achieve 100 per cent Covid-19 vaccination coverage as targeted by the Centre, said a senior official of the state health department.

In the first phase, the state had achieved 85 per cent vaccination coverage till Saturday, the official added.
