Delivery boys must be vaccinated on a priority basis, says Sisodia

Friday, 11 June 2021 | Staff Reporter | NEW DELHI

Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia on Thursday directed the Health Department officials to tie up with commercial platforms such as Amazon, Flipkart, Zomato, Swiggy, Dunzo besides others to ensure speedy vaccination for the delivery agents working for these organisations.

Sisodia said that these agents are making sure that people stay at home and avoid crowding markets. They should be vaccinated at the earliest, he said.

"Delhi has received vaccines for the 18-44 year age group and has begun vaccination drives for this segment of the population.

 It is important to vaccinate delivery persons as they keep travelling and ensure that  products are delivered to us at our doorsteps so that we don’t have to  go outside," he said. "Delivery persons are at extra risk as their job involves traveling from home to home and meeting multiple people throughout the day. Vaccinating them at the earliest is the need of the hour,” he said.
