New Delhi: Centre has launched ‘Har Ghar Dastak 2.0’ to inoculate 100 percent population against Covid 19.
The objective of the ‘Har Ghar Dastak 2.0’ Abhiyan is to vaccinate and cover the eligible population groups for first, second, and precaution doses through door-to-door campaigns.
The major focus will also remain on improving sub-optimal coverage of persons aged 60 years with precaution dose, along with the considerably slower speed of coverage in the 12-14 years cohort by focussed campaigns for old age homes, schools, colleges including the out-of-school children prisons, brick kilns, etc.
The states and UTs have been urged to undertake effective monitoring with respective micro-plans based on duelists of all eligible beneficiaries. They have been also urged to review the administration of precaution doses to the 18-59 years age group with the private hospitals regularly.
As of now, 193.57 crore doses have been administered across the country under the national vaccination drive. As per the health ministry report, 96.3 percent of all persons above 15 years of age have received at least one dose and 86.3 percent have received both the doses of COVID-19 vaccine.
