A senior district official said on Friday that Kovid-19 would conduct a vaccination drive to give the first dose of vaccine to all college students in Thane district of Maharashtra. Thane Additional Collector Vaidehi Ranade presided over a meeting of district college heads, where he said institutions would start vaccinating students from October 25 in light of the implementation of the Youth Health Campaign.
District colleges have been instructed to draw up a list of students who have already taken the first job, and the rest will be vaccinated at the college, the official said.
Colleges will submit to the health department a list of eligible students to be covered with the first dose, which in turn will organize vaccination camps, he said. The meeting was attended by representatives of 56 colleges (excluding municipal corporation boundaries).
Additional Collector Ranade added that as of Oct. 20, at least 70 percent of the district’s eligible beneficiaries had been given the first dose, while 34 percent had received both doses.
