The COVID-19 vaccination drive in Uttar Pradesh has gained further momentum after the implementation of the Cluster Model 2.0 in rural areas under which special teams have been deputed in the rural areas to go from door-to-door and make people aware of the need to get the vaccine cover.
In Uttar Pradesh, around 72.69 per cent of the eligible people have been given the first dose of the Covid vaccine and 30.36 per cent of the eligible people have received both the doses of the vaccine.
On Monday, Uttar Pradesh reached a new milestone in the battle against COVID-19 as the number of people administered vaccines crossed the 15-crore mark in the state. Till now, the state has administered over 15.30 crore doses of anti-COVID-19 vaccine.
In terms of people, more than 10.76 crore individuals are partially vaccinated in the state, while 4.53 crore have taken both the doses of the Covid vaccine. Uttar Pradesh has emerged as the fastest state in India to carry out Covid vaccination.
The sustained availability of vaccines and accurate strategy, mainly the Cluster Model 2.0 being adopted by the state government, along with the hard work of the health workers is behind this remarkable achievement.
Teams are going from village to village in Uttar Pradesh and giving call slips (containing information of place and date of vaccination) to the people. Before the arrival of the vaccination team in the cluster, the cluster mobilisation teams are clearing out the misconceptions related to the Covid vaccine among the people and motivating them to get vaccinated.
Two quick response teams have been activated to manage any adverse events during vaccination in the cluster.
Vaccination is being carried out in the combined district hospital till 10 pm to ensure that no one is left out of the anti-coronavirus vaccination campaign.
Meanwhile, novel coronavirus cases have fallen sharply in UP since the devastating months at the start of the year. The active caseload has reduced to 94. In the last 24 hours 10 fresh cases have been reported and as many COVID-19 patients have recovered during this period.
