Prime Time Zone, Telangana Bureau: The vaccination distribution program for government health care staff in the state is already complete and will be completed by the fifth of this month for private medical staff who are currently taking over. After that, it will not be possible to vaccinate the health care staff, said Dr Srinivasa Rao, director of the state public health department. So far, about 65 per cent of government health care staff in the state have been vaccinated and only half have been vaccinated in private. Of the total 3,25,771 private healthcare staff, 1,65,880 were hired until Tuesday evening, with the rest being given until Friday to make it clear that there would be no chance of giving up after that.
“We want to start distributing vaccines to frontline warriors like police, revenue and sanitation personnel from the sixth of this month. If there are any problems in ‘Covin’, it will start from the eighth of this month,” he said. Their number in the state is estimated to be around 1.87 lakh, of which at least ten per cent are not vaccinated for various health reasons, a health official said. They were told that the vaccination process would be completed in just ten days. The director explained that the second dose would be distributed to the healthcare staff as soon as the process was completed. He also said that it would take about one and a half to two months and that all those who took the first dose would have to be given a second dose or the vaccine would not work.
