Udupi, Sept 16, 2021: ‘Sir, I was Covid positive. When can I take Covid vaccine?’ ‘The due date for my second dose is next week. But can I take it tomorrow during the Mega vaccination camp?’… these were some of the questions raised during the phone-in program of Udupi DC Kurma Rao.
DC Kurma Rao along with Zilla Panchayat CEO Dr. Naveen Bhat and other officials participated in the Phone-in program. The program was to clarify the doubts of the people on Covid vaccination.
The questions raised by the callers during the phone in the program indicated that people still had several doubts related to vaccination.
On a question, if the vaccination can be taken before the due date, the Deputy Commissioner said that the system would not allow anybody to take the second jab.
“The system is in such a way that it will allow the person to register for the second dose only after the due date,” he said.
Answering a question on vaccination for those who have contracted Covid, District Nodal Officer, Dr. Prashanth Bhat said that a person can take the vaccine three months after being cured of Covid.
