Delhi Schools would not reopen till the vaccination process is completed
Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Thursday said the schools in Delhi would not resume for now. He doesn’t want to take any risk till the vaccination process is completed. “Internationally, there is a trend of a resurgence of Covid-19 through a third wave; hence, until the vaccination process is completed for everyone, we cannot risk lives of children,” Kejriwal said during the inauguration of the pneumococcal conjugate vaccination programme in west Delhi.
Delhi chief minister hailed off the program at a government polyclinic in Paschim Vihar. Pneumococcal diseases are bacterial infections caused by bacteria Streptococcus pneumoniae, or pneumococcus. Pneumococcal diseases are the main source of bleakness and mortality in kids under 2 years. The vaccine will shield them from infections like pneumonia, meningitis, and sepsis.
It generally costs Rs. 1,500-6,000, yet will be regulated for free at Delhi government’s centres. Each child will get three doses of vaccine at the age of one and a half months, three months and a half months, and nine months respectively.
