Central government’s response on vaccination for all
Amidst the demand by various states and groups to apply vaccine to all persons above the age of 18 years, the central government said that the goal of vaccination is to protect those at the most risk. Union Health Secretary Rajesh Bhushan said on Tuesday that vaccination campaign has been carried out in western countries in a phased manner. The Indian Medical Association (IMA) also wrote a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi suggesting that all people above 18 years of age should be allowed to take the vaccine.
Rajesh Bhushan said, “The basic goal is to reduce deaths through vaccination.” The second goal is to protect our health system. Who would work in hospitals if health workers, doctors, nurses, paramedical workers and other workers became ill? Therefore, the most important goal in any country is to secure the most vulnerable. The goal is to give vaccines to those who need more, not vaccination of those who want to take the vaccine. ”
