Colombo, July 14 (Daily Mirror) – Issues have arisen with regard to the data of information on nearly 300,000 people who received the COVID-19 vaccine during the first vaccination drive, Army Commander General Shavendra Silva said.
The Head of the National Operations Centre for Prevention of COVID-19 (NOCPC) told local media that the issue has been noted during the vaccination drive conducted under the purview of the health sector.
Stating that the health sector had recorded data of people who were being vaccinated in books, General Silva said it is unable to obtain the data of people who received the vaccine from the first million doses administered in Sri Lanka.
He said the tri-forces operated vaccination drive had computerised the data of people arriving to be vaccinated.
The Army Commander added that now the tri-forces personnel are unable to obtain records of 300,000 people who were provided the AstraZeneca vaccine during the initial vaccination drive.
