Pune district has been able to administer a total of 32.13 lakh vaccine doses against coronavirus till June 8 this year. The first dose of the Covid vaccine has been administered to as many as 17.88 lakh beneficiaries in the 45 and above age group, of which 4.17 lakh have also got the second shot.
In the age group of 18-44 years, a total of 4.41 lakh beneficiaries have been administered the first dose while 10,816 have got the second shot, as per a state report till June 8. Among the healthcare workers a total of 1.49 lakh have been administered the first vaccine dose while 90,658 have got both doses.
There are 2.25 lakh frontline workers who have received the first dose while 89,345 in this group have got both vaccine shots.
According to a health department report, a total of 1.71 lakh in the age group 18-44 and 3.18 lakh in the age group 45 and above have got their first vaccine shots in Pune city. In these groups, 4,736 and 55,403 have got both doses so far.
Dr Sanjay Deshmukh, assistant director (health) of Pune circle that includes Pune, Satara and Solapur, said that they had a capacity of vaccinating nearly 80,000 people daily across 600 centres .
“However we are getting doses in small batches and the last time we got the vaccine doses was two days ago, when the district obtained 29,000 Covaxin and 29,500 Covishield doses. So, on some days, vaccination continues at a slow pace, For instance on June 9, the target was to administer vaccine doses to 25,940 beneficiaries in the district. Of these, we were able to administer doses (both first and second shots) to a total of 27,513 beneficiaries.,” Dr Deshmukh said.
“We are expecting a larger number of doses in the next 10 days ,” he added.
Students’ vaccination to be expedited
Pune Municipal corporation health authorities said a special drive for four days had ensured that at least 1,500 students who wanted to travel abroad for higher studies were administered the vaccine dose.
“We are now waiting for the CoWin app to be updated so that it will be easier for more students and persons wanting to travel abroad for jobs to apply for the vaccine,” said a PMC health official.
The Union Ministry of Health and Family Welfare has received several representations for allowing administration of second dose of Covishield to persons who want to travel abroad for either educational or employment purposes and even as part of the India’s contingent for Tokyo Olympics.
Currently, the minimum interval between the two doses is 84 days from the date of the first dose. However, there are several whose travel dates fall prior to completion of this mandated period. While the Centre has allowed special dispensation of vaccine doses to these categories, officials are waiting for changes to be made in the CoWin app, where instead of the column of 84 days, it can be made 28 days.
