NEW DELHI: The Centre will start a door-to-door Covid vaccination campaign over the next one month, primarily aimed at increasing coverage of second dose jabs in poor performing districts, even as it has asked the states to target “end of November” for covering their eligible population with at least one dose.
Under the ‘Har Ghar Dastak’ campaign, the government and local administrative bodies will pursue those who have not taken the second dose of the vaccine even after the protocol-recommended interval is over. Besides, it will also identify people who have not yet sought to be vaccinated and try to address issues including hesitancy.
The move comes in the wake of more than 10.3 crore people ‘overdue’ for their second jab despite the availability of over 12 crore doses with states and UTs. Health minister Mansukh Mandaviya urged states to implement innovative strategies to encourage people to come forward to take their pending jabs.
