Indore is the first district in India, with a population of 10 lakh+, to have achieved this win.
In a landmark victory against the COVID pandemic, Indore has achieved 100% first dose vaccine coverage among its eligible population. This means, that all people over the age of 18 years here, have at least received their primary anti-viral jab. Reportedly, Indore is the first district in India, with a 10 lakh+ population, to have achieved this feat. This, in turn, has strengthened the current healing trends in the city, the state and the nation, at large.
Indore creates history!
Indore, which was once the worst-hit COVID district of Madhya Pradesh, has joined the list of cities that have administered the first vaccine dose to all its adults. This remarkable achievement is a successful statement of its agile inoculation drive, a dedicated immunisation staff and cooperative public.
The Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister on Tuesday, acknowledged the efforts of the entire campaign and congratulated the citizens for having bagged this important win against the spread of the virus. 100% first vaccination coverage hampers the virulence of the novel coronavirus and its multiple strains, ahead of the expected rise of the 'third phase'. Even if the transmission rate spikes in the future, its impact will be handicapped, paving way for rapid recovery.

इस जीवन रक्षक अभियान को सफल बनाने वाले सभी इंदौरवासियों का अभिनंदन! #MPFightsCorona
