Imphal, May 22:

With the graph of the covid -19 vaccination which has been underway in the state of Manipur remain jig zag showing state authority of the vaccination section of the state health department failure to speed up the vaccination drive, a high level committee of the state vaccination unit has decided to organize mass vaccination at community level, a reliable source told Imphal Times.

On an average the state government could vaccinate only around 6000 doses per day even as the stock with the State Vaccine Store (SVS) is supposed to be 101,047 doses as on May 21. If the trend continues it is likely to complete the vaccine doses in stock with the government for around 8 months. And because of this the allocated vaccines for the state may be reallocated to other states which had speed up vaccination and which needs more by the Immunization division of the Union Ministry of Health and Family Welfare.

As per records only around 8,787 people who are between 18 years to 44 years have been vaccinated the first dose. The 3rd phase vaccination programme started from May 17 and on th very day as many as 1828 people of the age group were vaccinated and for reason best known , there was no vaccination on the following day. The number however increased on May 19 with the total vaccination of this group reaching 4,319. Not everything seems to be fine with the number of vaccination decreasing to 73 on May 20 . On May 21 the total number of people between te age group 18 to 44 reached 2,567.  That too there were no vaccination conducted for this age group at 11 (eleven centers) on May 21, as per report. Vaccination were conducted for this age group only at Churachandpur (1247), Imphal East (890), Jiribam (163) , kamjong (136) and Ukhrul (131).

Why the graph of the vaccination cannot be rise at a tie when the state authority have been appealing people for vaccination at the earliest, is the questioned raise by from section of people. Is it because those utilizing for cowin registration are not efficient enough or are there lack of manpower or is it because the the vaccination site is less?

Interestingly, a reliable source told Imphal Times that the government had decided to relax the limitation of vaccine beneficiaries that was earlier fixed at 150. Besides, it has also been decided to increase the vaccination centers . In a meeting of the core committee for vaccination of the state government it has also been decided to conduct mass vaccination in the community in support with the Community/Club/ Community based organization and elected members.
