A five-day campaign aimed at boosting the existing vaccination drive has also been scheduled from November 28 to December 2
Augmenting the ongoing vaccination drive in the city, the District Magistrate of Lucknow has now scraped the mandatory registration required before taking the vaccine against COVID. With the implementation of the walk-in vaccination system, the residents of Lucknow can now directly head to the vaccination centres and take the first or second jab without having to make a prior booking. The decision to do away with this prerequisite registration was taken by the DM in a meeting on Friday.
Campaign to boost vaccination drive to be launched in Lucknow
While talking about this new relaxation, the collector urged the public to take advantage of this decision and complete their vaccination status thereby helping the city eliminate the risk of another wave of this deadly virus. Moreover, an intensive campaign will be organised from November 28 to December 2 to ensure 100% vaccination of all those due with the second dose. Apart from this, the campaign will also focus on improving the vaccination rate of the city, including those who haven't taken the first dose as well.
As per the officials, a detailed micro-plan based on the cluster model is to be prepared and followed by the concerned department for this initiative. To increase the reach, vaccination camps will be organised at public sites like banks, ration shops and markets, amongst others.
According to the official data, while more than 17 lakh beneficiaries have been fully-inoculated in Lucknow over 32 lakh eligible population of the capital city has taken at least one jab as of now. Consequently, a total of around 50,52,834 doses of COVID vaccine have been administered across the city, at present.
