Jajpur: A youth from Odisha’s Jajpur district was taken aback few days back when he tried to register himself online to receive the Covid vaccine. The youth, Subhendu Kumar Pati from Jajpur town alleged the vaccination certificate has been issued to him even though he did not receive a single dose of the Covid vaccine.
Pati said he was working as a Data Entry Operator at the District Headquarters Hospital on contractual basis last year. While working with the hospital, his identity proof and other related documents were taken from him for the Covid Vaccination drive. Later the Government launched the vaccination drive for frontline workers and health workers in first phase this year.
After his job contract got over in December last year, Pati did not visit the Jajpur district headquarters hospital.
When the Government launched the Covid vaccination drive for 18-44 age group, Pati tried to register himself in www.cowin.gov.in. To his utter surprise, Pati found a vaccination certificate has been issued to him on the Cowin website.
Pati alleged someone has taken the Covid jab by misutilising his identity proof despite the fact that he himself has not received a single dose of the vaccine.
