The government has decided to inoculate more groups from February 14 under its Covid-19 vaccination drive.

Issuing a statement on Thursday, the Ministry of Health and Population informed that employees of all district-based government offices, public corporations and banks, journalists, elected local representatives, security personnel deployed for border security, and those who were missed out during the first phase of the campaign -- health workers, health volunteers, drivers of ambulances and funeral vehicles, security persons mobilised for managing the bodies of those infected -- will be vaccinated against the coronavirus.

The vaccines will be administered to this group between February 14 to 20, noted MoHP. The Ministry has appealed to those belonging to these groups to visit the designated health facilities or vaccination centres to get inoculated.

MoHP has further urged all to carry their official identity card while going to receive the vaccine.

The Ministry had earlier decided to vaccinate mediapersons, officials of the UN agencies, diplomats, among others, for five days from February 8 to 12, in Kathmandu.
