NEW DELHI: India has hit a milestone with 1.28 crores vaccination doses in a day. The central government is increasing its vaccination drive by expanding the vaccine supply in all the states. The nationwide vaccination drive provides free Covid vaccines, for all the citizens. The CG has procured 75 percent of vaccines, for a smooth vaccine supply.
The fear of the third wave in October has led to Kerala decreasing the second dose gap from 84 days to 4 weeks. On the other hand, Himachal Pradesh is the first state to vaccinate 100 percent above 18 candidates.
Amidst all of this the Delhi Government has started a vaccination on wheel drive for inoculation of labourers and others. The vaccination drive is run by a van where people will register on the spot to get vaccinated inside the van by a hospital team and administration.
The New Delhi district administration has taken this initiative for the labourers who are unaware of registration and are not vaccinated. Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital is managing the vaccination drive through the van service.
According to locals, they are happy with the service as it is convenient and should continue. Over 1 crore people have been administered the vaccines as everyday approximately 1.5 lakh people are vaccinated in Delhi, but a large population remains unvaccinated especially when it comes to the second dose of the vaccine.
The vaccination on wheels is expected to cover the large population and reduce the huge gatherings in vaccination centres, so that everyone gets vaccinated.
