Cluster vaccination plan slated to begin on July 1 in Lucknow, deferred till further notice!
With an objective to propel the vaccination program in Lucknow, cluster vaccination drives were supposed to start from July 1. As per reports, the scheme has been postponed for now and the beneficiaries aged between 18 and 44 will be required to get online registrations and book their slots in order to procure the immunity booster jabs. Reportedly, the dearth of doses has the probable reason behind the deferral and it is expected that the plan will be implemented later.
A new batch of doses expected to arrive soon!
