The UT Administration is mulling over expanding the vaccination session sites to community centres and health and wellness centres.
To augment the vaccination facilities, the Centre has assigned two private hospitals – Healing Hospital and Landmark Hospital – to proceed with the vaccination programme.
Dr Amandeep Kaur Kang, Director, Health Services, UT, said, “Our aim is to expand the vaccination sites and make at least six community centres functional. Till now, our focus was on the GMSH, Sector 16, and the GMCH, Sector 32. Now, as the vaccination programme reaches the community level, our focus will be on peripheral areas and we will augment the vaccination facilities in these areas.”
The Centre had announced that everyone aged 60 and above and those over 45 years with comorbidities would be able to get the Covid vaccine from March 1 for free at government facilities and for a charge at private hospitals.
