Panaji: Health Department on Tuesday asked its officers to ensure that the ongoing drive to Vaccinate people from COVID-19 infection should not be used for political gain in the areas where Code of Conduct is in session due to upcoming municipal polls.

Five municipal councils will be going for polls on April 23.

Directorate of Health Services (DHS), in a communication to the in-charges of state-run Health Centres where the vaccination is currently underway, has asked to ensure that the COVID-19 vaccination drive should not be used for political gains.

“All the in-charges please take a note that vaccination sessions in areas where there is code of conduct due to election should be strictly apolitical,” the communication from DHS has said.

The department has said that no political parties or individuals should be involved in mobilisation of beneficiaries, giving refreshments etc.

“No politicians should be allowed to be present at vaccination sites, no photographs or banners of politicians should be allowed,” the DHS said.

The DHS has said that any coordinator with political identity should not be involved in organisations and conducting of vaccination sessions in afore mentioned areas of code of conduct.
