Ensure COVID vaccination for all
The Indian Medical Association has written to Prime Minister Narendra Modi suggesting that vaccination be allowed for all people above the age of 18 years.
The association stated that the pandemic’s second wave surge is reaching record highs and added that vaccination against COVID-19 stands as a single evidence-based resource for us to restrict cases by raising the personal immune response and pave the way for herd immunity to decrease the severity of the disease.
The association suggests that the vaccination strategy be geared up with immediate effect and on a war footing. The Centre Government should initiate steps to ensure COVID vaccination for all. This is the need of the hour.
