New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday held a review meeting of officials of districts with low Covid-19 vaccination. Those districts attended this meeting where the coverage of the first dose of corona vaccine is less than 50 percent and the coverage of the second dose is also very less. Referring to some shortfall in vaccination, PM Narendra Modi said, 'If we become a little lax after touching the figure of one billion vaccines, then there can be a bigger crisis. The shortcoming is to remove them quickly. We have to focus on every village, every town.


Prime Minister Modi said, 'If a separate strategy has to be made for every village, then make it. You can do this by making a team of 25 people, you can also take help from NCC, NSS, we have to make more and more people aware. Religious leaders will also have to be involved in this vaccination campaign. I just met the Pope in the Vatican. We have to emphasize on taking the thinking of religious leaders on vaccination to the local people., ghar ghar tika .. we have to reach every house with this spirit.' He said, 'I thank the Chief Ministers for taking part in the vaccination meeting, it is hoped that under their guidance, now the vaccination will go ahead. In the meeting, the Prime Minister interacted with the Chief Ministers of 11 states with low corona vaccination coverage of Jharkhand, Manipur, Nagaland, Arunachal Pradesh, Maharashtra, Meghalaya and other states.


The PM said that the news of coronavirus is coming out again in some countries, so it is very important to apply both the doses of the vaccine on time. We will have to contact the people who have not applied the second dose in your states on priority. Another dose will have to be applied as soon as possible.
