KATHMANDU, August 12: The government has begun administering COVID-19 vaccines to university students from Thursday.

The university students with admit cards for the examination can receive their COVID-19 shots from today, said Dr Jhalak Sharma Gautam, chief of the Child Health and Immunization Section of the Department of Health Services.

“In the context of the Kathmandu Valley, students can visit Nepal Police Hospital, Nepal Army Hospital, Armed Police Force Hospital, Civil Hospital and Radha Swami Isolation Center for their vaccination,” Dr Gautam added.

“Likewise, for students in other districts, the district administration will decide in this regard.”

Earlier, the government had decided to provide COVID-19 vaccines to university students attending their examinations after the protests of students against the government’s decision to conduct examinations in the physical presence of students.
