Mega vaccination campaign to restart in Lucknow from August 3rd!
In a bid to boost the vaccination program in Lucknow, the authorities are re-initiating a mega vaccination campaign in the city on 3rd August. As a part of this initiative, the officials of the command centre and the CM Helpline facility will contact those who've been vaccinated only once, to take their second jab. Previously, mega inoculation drives were organised at Chhota Imambara, KD Singh Babu Stadium and Ekana Stadium but the dearth of vaccines caused a halt in the schedules.
