As per the health officials, the inoculation drives in Uttar Pradesh have been propelled by the cluster model. With effective planning and comprehensive execution, this scheme has checked all lags in terms of hampered connectivity, lack of internet facilities and other things. Deploying meticulous planning at the grassroots level, this project has enhanced the accessibility of vaccination in rural regions.

Notably, 40% of the daily vaccinations are being conducted in rural areas after the implementation of the cluster model. Additional Chief Secretary (ACS), Health and Family Welfare, Amit Mohan Prasad informed that the state has sufficient availability of vaccines in its inventories and all eligible individuals must avail of the benefit at the earliest. Further, it has been observed that citizens across the state are more aware and keen about the vaccination program now.
