Imphal, May 29:

Maybe, it was an extraordinary case, best known to the State Health Department authority; reports received from the state government revealed that 2 (persons) between 18 years to 44 (forty-four years) got second dose vaccination at a CVC opened at Kakching district yesterday.
This happens, at a time when thousands of people between this age group have been waiting desperately to get scheduled for vaccination after they have registered through Co-win applications.
As per the guidelines issued by the concerned ministry of the Government of India dated May 16 minimum period between the first dose and the second dose has been set to 84 days i.e. 12 to 16 weeks. Even though the order relaxes for those registered for 2nd dose prior to the change of the guidelines, it is a known fact to everyone that the third phase vaccination began on May 17, 2021.
Assuming the 2 persons vaccinated the first dose on the first day which the 3rd phase programme began in Manipur, the two of them get the vaccination of 2nd dose after 12 days, which is in violation of the government guidelines.
