Explained: UP's "Mission June" aims to vaccinate a crore

The Uttar Pradesh government on Tuesday launched its "Mission June", a massive vaccination campaign that aims to inoculate one crore people in the next 30 days. The government will also initiate a special drive to vaccinate drivers, vendors, and rickshaw pullers across the state from June 15.

According to a report in Indian Express, nearly 1,83,32,104 people have been vaccinated with one dose, and 34,80,181 with both doses in the most populous state of India.

A Sero Survey has also been ordered from June 4 to determine the presence of antibodies against the COVID-19 in individuals and the results will be released by the month-end.

Why the drive is special

The special drive aims at vaccinating drivers, vendors and rickshaw pullers at the earliest as they are the first point of contact in the day-to-day scheme. When they are vaccinated, the risk of spreading the virus is reduced to a large extent.

Vaccine availability

The government has assured it has enough stocks and arrangements have been made to ensure the vials are supplied on a timely basis.

The process

Nearly 6,000 vaccination centres will be set up on a war footing across all 75 districts in UP to ensure the target to vaccinate 1 crore is achieved. Chief minister Yogi Adityanath has instructed the state officials to stay in touch with the Centre as well as the pharma companies for an uninterrupted supply of doses and vaccinate people who hail from the socially and economically weaker sections on a priority basis.

The state government has also organised special camps for journalists, government staff and members of the judiciary. Each district has been assigned a camp for the district court, two for government employees, and one for the media.
