Immunized Albertans still have to enter to win a prize in the province's vaccine lottery, the premier clarified Monday afternoon. "However, till date, only four Private Hospitals in Odisha have been able to procure vaccines directly from the Manufacturers", Mohapatra pointed out. Everyone age 12 and older will be eligible to get their second dose by the end of June.

The data also revealed most patients or at least 81 percent had full recovery of symptoms while 19 percent still had ongoing signs or symptoms.

In total, 2,163 people have recovered, and 45 people have died in the province from COVID-19.

Beginning today, anyone that received their first dose of a vaccine before May 1 can now book their second dose.

The province announced an accelerated second dose schedule Friday.

The expanded eligibility also includes anyone who received their first dose on or before April 7.

The Ministry of Health and Family in its revised guidelines for implementation of Covid vaccination campaign on June 8, 2021 said it will come into effect from June 21, 2021 across the country.

"Now, based on the experience gained in the feasibility study, the ICMR is keen to develop a model for vaccine delivery by UAV in the field practice area to reach areas to cover last-mile coverage at hard terrain in selected locations", it said.

That increased the number of people considered fully vaccinated to 178,409.

The news comes as Saskatchewan reported 106 new cases of the virus on Saturday.

But despite the lagging vaccination rate, the state's rolling average of daily new cases over the past two weeks has decreased by about 18 per cent, according to Johns Hopkins.

Similarly, 84% of people who said they were "not very" or not at all likely' to accept the jab when asked a year ago have been vaccinated, indicating that hesitancy about the vaccine has widely subsided in the past six months.

"And for those people, I really don't think giving them whatever it is, a one-in-a-million chance to win money, is actually going to make a big difference".

Health Minister Greg Hunt told reporters on Monday the government had reached agreement with medical groups on a home visitation payment program with a specific Medicare item.
