Around 80 per cent population in Chitwan is vaccinated against COVID-19. According to the District Public Health Office Chief Deepak Prasad Tiwari, 311,889 people in the district have got the first shot of COVID-19 vaccines and the number of people receiving the both doses are 259,977.

Covishield, Vero Cell and AstraZeneca vaccines were given in the district during the mass vaccination drive against the pandemic. Now, the health officials say the demand for the vaccine is falling significantly in the district.

The vaccine is available at the Health Office premises once a week and they had fixed Thursday as the day to provide COVID-19 vaccines.

However, Family Welfare Division Chief Sagar Dahal stressed the need of launching the vaccination campaign for COVID-19, targeting rural areas. As he said, marginalized communities in the rural areas have not participated in the vaccination drive and insisted that local governments should come up with vaccination programmes targeting them,.
