District Medical and Health Officer (DMHO) on Wednesday released the list of vaccination centres where a second dose of Covishield will be administered in Vizag on 13 May.
As per the release given by DMHO Dr. Suryanarayana, individuals who are due with their second dose will be given advance information on when, where and at what time the vaccine will be available. They will be communicated through phone, SMS or a slip. This notification will be given by the local ASHA worker. Only those who have been notified are to be present at the vaccine centres.
The idea of providing a slip or message is to avoid any inconvenience during these curfew times.
