Uttarakhand Chief Minister Pushkar Singh Dhami on Friday said that the state is aiming to achieve the target of 100 percent vaccination with both doses by December 15.
“Around 92 percent of the population has been inoculated with the first dose of COVID-19 vaccine. Further, we are aiming to inoculate 100 percent population with the first vaccine dose by the end of September and with the second dose by December 15,” informed Dhami.
Uttarakhand had set the target of administering two lakh people with COVID-19 vaccinations on Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s 71st birthday.
Dhami said, “We have achieved 50 percent of our target till 2 pm today and will be achieving 100 percent by the end of the day.”
With the continuous decline in COVID-19 cases in Uttarakhand, the state chief minister also said that they have already started preparations to resume Char Dham Yatra in the state now, which was banned by the Supreme Court earlier.
