Due to major technical glitch in the Co-WIN server on Monday nearly 2,000 healthcare workers in Assam were vaccinated, which was below the daily targeted figure of 6,500.
After the server snag, the department was left with a target of 4074 recipients in the functioning 41 session sites of total 65.
Adverse Event Following Immunization (AEFI) was reported on one person after Covishield vaccination but the health department said it was a minor case and did not require hospitalization.
The vaccination coverage on the second day was just above 49% which is five per cent below the coverage on Day 1 on Saturday.
According to officials the vaccination sessions could not be created in the CoWIN portal during Monday’s vaccination drive in as many as 12 districts of the state as a result of which no vaccination took place in Baksa, Biswanath, Cachar, Charaideo, Chirang, Dhemaji, Goalpara, Karimganj, Sonitpur, South Salmara Mankachar, Tinsukia and Udalguri districts.
The vaccination drive in Assam will take place four days a week — Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. Wednesdays have been reserved for other ongoing vaccination drives.
