Tika Utsav 3.0 in Goa to propel vaccination at municipal & panchayat levels from June 13

The initiative aims to ensure 100% first dose inoculation for all citizens in the territory.

Aiming to execute widespread vaccination drives in the state, the Goa government has decided to launch Tika Utsav 3.0 from June 13 onwards. The Chief Minister announced the decision on Friday, highlighting the need for immunisation to achieve the goal of herd immunity. With an objective to ensure 100% first dose inoculation for all citizens in the territory, the program will witness streamlined efforts and focused schedules.


Vaccination centres to be set up at panchayat and municipal levels

In a bid to accelerate extensive vaccination, the Chief Minister affirmed that inoculation sites will be instituted at every panchayat and municipal region. Further, he remarked that the motive will be to vaccinate close to 250 citizens at each of these centres daily. Given the scale and scope of the project, it can be said that a large chunk of the state population will be immunised if the drives are successfully materialised.

Additionally, the effects of Cyclone Tauktae were detrimental to the vaccination process. "Seventy five per cent people above 45 years have been vaccinated. As many as 30 per cent people have not taken their first dose yet," said the Goa Chief Minister.

The first thought that pops up in our mind when we think of Khadi is- comfortable clothing! One might pick this indigenous fabric for casual outfits but who could have thought Khadi can also be used as elaborate bridal wear. A stunning display of a Khadi wedding collection at this year's expo at IGP, organised by the Khadi Gramodyog Board, garnered a lot of attention and changed the way this fabric is perceived by many.
