Forget entering govt offices if jab not taken: Chandigarh advisor | Chandigarh News


CHANDIGARH: Both residents and officials will not be allowed entry in government offices without the first dose of Covid vaccination or RTPCR report of last 72 hours. UT adviser Dharam Pal issued these stern directions in a bid to draw more people to vaccination centres and prevent a third wave.
The health department was told to complete the second dose by December 15. The administration has claimed 100% first dose vaccination, a target the health department supposedly achieved before the August15 deadline.

“I will hold a meeting of department heads in the coming days and ensure full implementation of these directions. Vaccination is the only measure to tackle a possible third wave of coronavirus,” the adviser said.
First off the blocks, Chandigarh Housing Board (CHB) implemented the rules, with its CEO Yashpal Garg issuing the directions on Sunday. “The instructions applicable for visiting public are automatically applicable for officers. A list of all those officers who have not yet taken the first dose is to be prepared. In case any of them is found to be without vaccination or valid RTPCR report, disciplinary action will be taken,” a note from the CHB said.
In case of outsourced staff, the outsourcing agency is to be requested for replacing officials who have not yet taken the first dose.
