According to state Health Secretary Amitabh Avasthi, Himachal Pradesh is on track to vaccinate 100% of its eligible adult population with the second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine by next week. He told PTI that Himachal Pradesh is close to providing the second dosage of its immunisation to 90% of the population. “We’ve set a goal for ourselves to achieve complete vaccination saturation in the next seven days,” he explained.
Mansukh Mandaviya, the Union Health Minister, is expected to visit Bilaspur on December 5 to attend a function in this respect, he added.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi praised Himachal Pradesh’s efforts to finish the first dose of immunisation of the state’s adult population during a video conference meeting with healthcare personnel and beneficiaries of the vaccination campaign in September.
Three months ago, Himachal Pradesh became the first state to achieve 100% first-dose immunisation of the adult population.
