Sikkim to vaccinate Tues to Friday

Summit Report

Gangtok, 17 Jan:

As per the COVID-19 vaccination schedule for the states released by the Union Health Ministry on Sunday, vaccinations in Sikkim will be held on four days – Tues, Wed, Thurs and Fridays.

The Health Ministry, it is informed, has asked all big states to conduct vaccinations on any four days of the week, while smaller states were advised to hold vaccination sessions on any two days since their population is lower.

Interestingly, while a big state like Uttar Pradesh has decided to inoculate only two days every week, Sikkim had decided to hold the vaccination four days a week.

The Health Ministry in a presentation shared with the media said states and Union Territories were asked to hold COVID-19 vaccination session four days a week to minimise disruption in routine health services.
