Summary

The central government has so far provided more than 130 crore anti-corona vaccines to the states and union territories free of cost or through state purchases. The Union Ministry of Health and Family Welfare said on Sunday that more than 22 crore doses are still lying with the states.

A lucky draw has also been planned to accelerate the slow pace of vaccination of Kovid-19 in the country. According to sources, the Health Ministry has prepared a plan for weekly or monthly lucky draws for those who have received both the doses of the vaccine. The winners can be given kitchen items, ration kits, travel passes and cash prizes.

Through this, those who have not yet received the first dose of vaccine and whose second vaccine is still pending, will be encouraged to take the vaccine. Apart from this, a strategy has also been devised by the Health Ministry to provide vaccination camps at the workplace and to give ‘Fully Vaccinated’ badges to the employees who have taken both the vaccines.

Soon the states and union territories will be advised to adopt these initiatives. Along with this, influential people of the district and village will be asked to encourage people for vaccination. Such people can be appointed ambassadors of the government’s Har Ghar Dastak campaign. According to official figures, 82 per cent of the eligible population in the country has received the first dose of the vaccine. At the same time, 43 percent have taken both doses of the vaccine.
