Minister of Tamil Nadu: 1,60 crore individuals in phase I to get the shots

In the first stage, Tamil Nadu took steps to administer the COVID-19 vaccine to 1.60 crore individuals across the state, Health Minister Dr. Vijayabhaskar said on Saturday.

As part of the dry run, he told reporters at the ESI Hospital during a special camp that it was being carried out to recognize the problems and difficulties of vaccine administration.

A total of 47,200 vaccine centers and 21,200 health workers trained for this purpose have been set up, he said. For the trial run, at least 17 places in five districts were established, for which 425 employees were educated, he said.

The vaccinated individual was asked to wait 30 minutes for observation, he noted.

In the first step, 6 lakh health staff such as physicians, nurses in 2,881 government hospitals, and 35,403 private hospitals will be given the vaccine, he said.

Just one person in the state was found to be infected by the latest virus strain identified in the UK, he said.

Minister S P Velumani of the Local Administration praised the efforts of the medical teams and frontline staff to make the city safe and thanked Palaniswami for sanctioning adequate funds to combat the virus and opening district ‘Amma’ clinics.

As part of the 13th edition of Kovai Vizha by CII and Young Indians, a ceremony featuring a flower shower from a helicopter was organized at the hospital to honor the frontline staff who had served and lost their lives during the pandemic.
