Kathmandu Metropolitan City has announced inoculation of Covid-19 jabs for elderly citizens above the age of 65 who had received their first dose. The said group will now be administered AstraZeneca vaccines on Monday and Tuesday.

In a notice issued on Sunday, the metropolis stated that vaccination centres have been designated for the 32 ward offices of the Kathmandu metropolis and additional six centres have been allocated at various hospitals. The duration for vaccination will be between 10 am and 5 pm.  Around 1.3 million Nepalis above the age of 65 had received the first dose of AstraZeneca (Covishield) in March. The inability to deliver Covid-vaccines by Serum Institute of India had pushed millions of people in uncertainty for months.
