Marking a remarkable victory against the pandemic, all eligible citizens have been vaccinated in Goa's Surla village.

Notably, the Valpoi Community Health Centre officials played an important role in ensuring the cent percent coverage of the vaccination program in the village. As per reports, the in-charge of the centre apprised that his team visited every house in the village, in a bid to make sure each individual had access to the vaccination drive. Surveying through the homes situated on the top of the hill, the team of officials asked all non-vaccinated citizens to attend the camp on Sunday.

It is noteworthy that Surla stands at a distance of 50 Km from Valpoi and is 76 Km away from Goa's capital city, Panjim. Reportedly, the health centre in charge stated that the unavailability of internet facilities in Surla, became a hurdle for the online registration process on the Cowin platform. Thereby, the current success has been achieved through offline drives in the state.
