Lucknow: Vaccine campaigns are in full swing to defeat the corona virus in UP. In this episode, UP chief Yogi Adityanath has given security cover of Corona to more than 50 lakh youths. The number of vaccinations in the age group of 18 to 44 in the state has crossed 50 lakhs. With this, UP has become the first state in the country to vaccinate the youth the fastest and most.
Authorized sources said on Thursday that Yogi had started a free vaccination campaign in the state to provide corona protection cover to people in the age group of 18 to 44. This special vaccination campaign started under Mission June is getting tremendous success across the state. So far 50.70 lakh vaccine doses have been given to this class. Other states of the country are miles behind UP in this matter.
In the high-level meeting, the Chief Minister has directed to increase the figure of 4 lakh vaccinations per day to 5 to 6 lakhs within the next two-three days, while aiming to increase the daily dosage capacity to 10 to 12 lakhs by July. In order to meet the new target, CM Yogi has given instructions to the officers to link the nursing students with the vaccination campaign by training them. With the end of 'Mission June', the CM has directed to intensify the target of providing security cover to 10 crore people with 10 lakh doses a day in the next 3 months.
With 'Mission June', the vaccination campaign in UP is going on at a tremendous pace. This can be gauged from the fact that in the first 9 days of June, 33 lakh doses of the vaccine were administered. According to government data, the total number of vaccinations in the state is 2,15,65,323. Of these, about 1,78,64,149 have received the first dose and 37,01,174 have received both doses of the vaccine.
For the economically weak people, the state government is going to start a special vaccination campaign in every district from June 14. Under this, vaccine will be given to other people including street vendors, handcarts, street shopkeepers, auto rickshaw and e-rickshaw drivers.
