Ensure 100% Covid-19 vaccination, focus on kids & elderly, states told

Federal Health Minister Mansukh Mandavia urged state health ministers to ensure 100% coverage of Covid-19 vaccines among eligible residents during the month-long ‘Har Ghar Dastak’ 2.0 campaign during a video conference held to review progress in the programme.

He asked states to focus on providing the first and second doses to children aged 12-17, and to reach out to them through school campaigns and campaigns aimed at reaching out-of-school children during the holiday. “Let us accelerate our efforts to identify all beneficiaries in the 12-17 age group for the first and second doses so that they can enroll in schools,” the minister said.
