The Health Minister credited the healthcare staff for their rigorous efforts to pace up the state's vaccination drive. "All personnel of the health department did the work diligently and this is the reason more than 5 crore population could be vaccinated in a very short span of time."

Strict vigilance necessary amid fears of the impending third wave!

Even though there has been a visible decline in COVID cases in the desert state, the danger of the pandemic is yet not over. As such, the Health Minister urged the people to stick to the state-issued safety guidelines follow all pandemic protocols.

Experts have prescribed extra caution to avert the anticipated 'third wave' of this deadly virus. People must make it a habit to wear masks while going out, avoid crowded places, maintain social distance and wash hands frequently with soap to prevent the infection spread, the Minister added.
