Kathmandu Metropolitan City has announced inoculation of Covid-19 jabs for elderly citizens above the age of 65 who had received their first. The said group will now be administered AstraZeneca vaccines on Monday and Tuesday.

Issuing a notice on Sunday, the metropolis stated that vaccination centres have been designated for the 32 ward offices of the Kathmandu metropolis and additional six centres have been allocated at various hospitals. The duration for vaccination will last from 10 am till 5 pm.

Around 1.3 million Nepalis above the age of 65 had received the first dose of AstraZeneca (Covishield) in March. The inability to deliver Covid-vaccines by Serum Institute of India had pushed million people in uncertainty for months.

Despite the circumstances, arrival of around 300,000 doses of surplus AstraZeneca vaccine from Bhutan on Friday and consignment of another 1.6 million AZ vaccines donated by Japan through COVAX facility has allowed the government to finally schedule the vaccination drive.

Of the 1.6 million doses to be received from Japan, 800,000 have arrived on Saturday and Sunday while the remaining doses will be arriving another week.

Vaccination centres have been established in all the wards of the metropolis.
