Panaji: The Goa government will start 'Tika Utsav' (vaccination festival) in all panchayats and municipalities in the state from May 26 to get those above 45 vaccinated against COVID-19, Chief Minister Pramod Sawant said on Monday. He said only 60 per cent of this segment had been covered in the vaccination drive, adding that the centres would be the same where Tika Utsav was held earlier.
"Only the first dose of vaccine would be given during the Tika Utsav. Those due for the second dose can get it from their respective health centres," he said.
