The vaccination is being administered to the health workers, security personnel, drivers among other utility staff working at mortuary departments and inmates in the first phase of the vaccination drive that will last on Saturday, February 6.

Meanwhile, the MoHP has issued a directive to all the vaccination centres to vaccinate the health workers who present themselves with identity cards bearing photo and registration numbers filed under Nepal Medical Council, Nepal Nursing Council, Nepal Health Professional Council and Nepal Pharmacy Council.
