The Center has asked states to organize special Covid vaccination sessions through earmarked centers, and to train vaccinators to prevent vaccine mixing during inoculation of children aged 12-14. On the occasion of National Vaccination Day, the COVID-19 vaccination for the age group will start at all government Covid vaccination centers from Wednesday.
The COVID-19 vaccine to be administered is Corbevax, manufactured by Biological E. Limited, Hyderabad. Beneficiaries can receive the injection after online registration (from 9.00 am on Wednesday) or via walk-in on site.
In a video conference with representatives from all states and union territories, Union Health Minister Rajesh Bhushan said: “Vaccinators and vaccination teams should be trained to ensure that there is no mixing of vaccines, especially for the 12-14 age group. .
States were advised to organize special vaccination sessions through earmarked COVID-19 vaccination centers for vaccination of the age group of 12-14 years to avoid mixing with other vaccines.”
States were also advised to ensure judicious use of available COVID-19 vaccines. Previous guidelines allow states to replace vaccines that expire and also replace them from one district within the state to another to ensure vaccines are not wasted.
