As per reports, the government has directed health department officials to ensure a seamless transition, for a faster and wider vaccination process. Besides, an additional shift-wise vaccination programme has been planned for all remote locales to forward the defence feet against the pandemic.

Initiating a strong charge against the spread of coronavirus in rural UP, the govt will be converting regional schools and colleges into vaccination centres. This move comes in view of the administration attempt of targeting the unvaccinated population, to avert the crisis of another infection wave of a peak.

On the directives of the CM, a definitive shift-wise vaccination plan will be launched in remote areas of the state to pace up the overall vaccination drive, an informed government spokesperson. "It is important to speed up the process of vaccination in rural areas. For this, inter-departmental coordination should be done", he added.

In villages, schools and colleges will double up as vaccination centres to ensure swifter vaccine coverage. A shift-wise programme will ensure longer operational hours of the sites, motivating people to get the anti-COVID jab at their convenience.

Tugging the reins of a successful vaccination drive, Uttar Pradesh is closing on the target of 14 crores jabs as yet - with a total of 13.97 administered shots. It may be noted that over 26% of the state's eligible population has also taken both doses of the vaccine, effectively reducing the chance of a successive COVID resurgence. Besides, the first jab coverage in UP stands as high as 69%.

UP COVID-19 quarterly stats remain below the 50-mark

Marking a remarkable COVID arrest, the Uttar Pradesh administration and health department claim to have restricted the quarterly rise of COVID-19 cases under the 50 mark. Officials have attributed this pandemic dip to an elaborate tracing, tracking, testing treatment and vaccination scheme of the state.

Around 67 out of the total 75 districts in Uttar Pradesh recorded zero COVID-19 cases in the past 24 hours, making a bold statement of the state's prevention and precaution approach. Reportedly, the present active caseload in UP stands at a total of 99 with the detection of 12 new positive cases on Sunday.
