Movement in these regions will be monitored by designated health teams to curb the wild spread of the deadly virus.

Indore also wrapped up the free vaccination camp seated at the District Court on Tuesday. As per reports, more than 1900 lawyers and their relatives were vaccinated here. The organising ad-hoc committee has also arranged for free RT-PCR COVID tests for the lawyers, informed a committee associate. He also shared that over 500 lawyers have taken advantage of the same.

Additionally, the health department is considering to ramp-up the number of vaccination sites in Indore. As per this plan, each municipal ward in the district will have at least one session of COVID-19 vaccination in the coming days. This will look after the vaccination of pending frontline workers or the second phase beneficiaries. These new sites will help the district achieve the target of vaccinating 10 lakh people s – both initial and booster doses, in the next four months.
