‘Covid is still present in Goa and there may be chances of a sporadic rise. It is a wait and watch,’ said Dr Rajendra Borkar, Goa State Immunization Medical Officer with regards to how safe Goa is with 100% vaccination. He added that the expert committee will decide whether Goa will go mask-free or not. On the third dose, Borkar explained that the Government of India has not given further intimation on the same. They will carry on administering the dose 9 months post the second dose. Borkar said that in the 18-year category, ‘we have completed 100% vaccination and more.’ “Don’t wait for things to happen, get yourself vaccinated,” he cautioned. The dose of Corbevax vaccine will be given to only above 12 years.
