KATHMANDU: The District Health Office, Kathmandu is set to resume the booster dose campaign against COVID-19 from coming September 11.

Information Officer at the Office, Anjana Khadka, shared that the campaign was resumed in consideration of the fact that many people missed out on getting the booster dose against the Coronavirus infection.

The campaign will run through September 16. Those above 12 years who missed out on getting vaccinated will get the first and second doses of the vaccine besides the first booster and second.

Tulasi Subedi, the focal person of the Office, shared that the campaign was taken forward again since there was a very negligible number of people availing of the second dose.

The public health office in Kathmandu has urged everyone to reach out to the nearest primary healthcare centers, health facilities, community schools and municipal hospitals among other places to get vaccinated.
