Covid vaccination: 3,000 centres in Karnataka to administer shots | Bengaluru News – Times of India


BENGALURU/MYSURU: From Monday, 3,000 vaccination centres will be operational in the state, said health minister K Sudhakar. These include primary health centres and taluk and district hospitals.
Karnataka, he added, plans to vaccinate 1.5 lakh people every day.
While the government has set an ambitious target, technical issues continue to dog phase 2 of the vaccination drive in the Mysuru region. According to several people, no slots for vaccination are available in Mysuru, Hassan, Shivamogga, Chamarajanagar, Kodagu, Chikkamagaluru and Mandya till April 2 on the self-registration portal (cowin.gov.in).
“I wanted to return to Delhi on April 1. My plan was to get my parents vaccinated before that. However, no slot is available till April 2. If we ask the authorities, they ask us to visit any centre where spot registration is done. If that is the case, why do we need the online registration?” said Girish Kumar.
In some districts, the response to the drive has been poor. In Chamarajanagar, till Friday evening, just 37 persons in the age group of 45-59 years received the vaccine, the lowest in the state. According to Satish J, a resident of Balehonnur, the biggest challenge is to register online. “The process starts with an OTP. Poor network connectivity affects the process,” he said.
