Telangana Government has finally allowed vaccinating the 18+ age group in hospitals, workplaces, and gated communities. A G.O. regarding that is also issued. But then, it has to be seen how the vaccination drive given that the state government is already struggling even the 45+ age group.
The vaccination drive has been stopped for ten days already. There is excitement all over the 18-44 age group in social media. But then, the vaccination drive will happen only if the private hospitals manage to procure vaccines. The demand will be huge, and the major task would be getting a slot on the Cowin app.
The vaccination of the 18-44 age group is most important for the state and the country as a whole. This age group is the most agile group in society, which has the highest potential to spread the virus. On the other side, Telangana Government has also decided to vaccinate cab drivers, auto drivers, conductors, LPG delivery boys, grocery store owners, and others for free.
#Telangana govt allows private hospitals which have been identified as private vaccination centres (PVCs) to carry out vaccination in the hospitals and also in workplaces (on requests made by institutions/companies/gated communities etc). Registration required on CoWin portal. pic.twitter.com/VgWTL0SXPy— Paul Oommen (@Paul_Oommen) May 25, 2021
