‘Cowin issues licence to spread virus’

Covid Certificate


Health department passes buck to Family Welfare

You have successfully been vaccinated with your 2nd dose with Covishield on 01-01-2022 at 4:10 PM,” read a message from COWIN. The message was received by Mohammad Sajad of Syed Wari, Khanyar with surprise. He phoned his friend Javed Shah and told him about the message of having been administered the second dose of COVID Vaccine. Javed reciprocated by saying that he also received the similar message. COWIN had issued certificates to kill the duo who were still waiting for their second dose next week.

As the country is approaching target of 1.5 billion vaccinations, it seems concerned authorities in the valley are trying to catch up with the flawed mechanism, hence putting the entire society at risk.

There is a gross lack of Coordination between the Health department and department of family welfare who are responsible for administering Covid Vaccine.

“I took my first Covisheild shot on 21st September 2021 in Gousia Hospital and second dose was due on 25th December 2021 which is pending till date. But to my utter surprise last Sunday me and my friend received a message thanking for taking both dose”, said Javed Shah, a newspaper Editor.
