Embarking upon a massive vaccination drive under its Mission June, Uttar Pradesh government has targetted to inoculate over one crore people against COVID-19 in the month of June starting Tuesday.
“Our goal is to give shots to one crore people in the month of June. We have a sufficient amount of vaccine vials available to meet our target,” said the Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath while addressing a high-level meeting here on Monday. He also instructed the health officials to stay in constant touch with the Centre and vaccine manufacturing companies.
In regard to the largest vaccination drive, the Yogi Government has chalked out a detailed plan to vaccinate more than one crore of its people. The campaign will focus on beneficiaries of both the age groups; 18+ as well as 45+.
Instructing to make equally special arrangements for socially and economically weaker sections in its aggressive campaign against COVID-19, CM has announced a special vaccination drive for drivers, vendors, and rickshaw pullers from June 15 as they interact with many people in their daily work.
In order to meet the target, approximately 6000 centres will be set up across the state.
Special camps have also been set up for journalists, government employees, and members of the judiciary. In this regard, four workplace vaccination centers will be established in each district- one for the district court, two for government employees, and one for the media personnel.
The vaccination drive will not only reduce the risk of infection but also help Uttar Pradesh to counter the COVID-19 pandemic challenges more effectively.
