The Pfizer vaccination campaign has been postponed for a few days, according to the government. Because of a shortage of syringes, according to Bharat Bhandari, Vaccination Officer, Vaccination Branch of the Department of Health Services, the vaccination campaign has been temporarily postponed.
In a statement, Bhandari stated that the vaccination campaign will begin as soon as the syringes are delivered. It was he who said, “We will begin the vaccination campaign as soon as the solution necessary for the vaccine is delivered. The start of the vaccination campaign has not been set in stone at this time. During the next eight to ten days, the campaign will most likely get underway.”
The Pfizer vaccine necessitates the use of a 0.33 mm syringe manufactured by Pfizer. The Pfizer vaccines for the vaccination campaign have already arrived in the country in the amount of six lakh 64 thousand 650 doses. The National Health Education, Information, and Communication Center of the Ministry of Health and Population had issued a notice on December 17 stating that the Pfizer vaccination campaign would be launched in eight districts from December 28 to January 6, according to the notice.
