Chandigarh, March 1

Haryana Health Minister Anil Vij, who inaugurated the third phase of inoculation digitally on Monday, explains why he doesn’t need a vaccine right away.

In a tweet in Hindi, Vij said: “Today 3rd phase of COVID vaccination is starting for people. There should be no hesitation for them now. However, I will not be able to take a dose as after getting Covid, my antibody count is 300, which is a quite a bit. This could be because of the trial vaccine that I took earlier. I don’t need vaccine right away”.

Vij had in December tested positive for corona virus days after getting a shot of Covid vaccine.

In Punjab and Haryana, the vaccine will be administered free of cost at government hospitals and will be administered at Rs 250 at government-empanelled private hospitals.

The vaccine will be administered to senior citizens above 60 years as well as those aged 45 to 59 years and suffering from co-morbidities as specified by the government.

They will, however, be required to provide certificates from registered medical practitioners regarding their co-morbidities.   The pre-registration is not mandatory in this round of vaccination and those willing to be vaccinated can either pre-register themselves or just walk in for the same.
