New Delhi: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Monday announced door to door survey in 70 wards for the vaccination of people above 45 years at the polling booth centres
Announcing the ambitious plan, Kejriwal said that if there is no shortage of vaccines, everyone above 45 years of age will be vaccinated in the city within four weeks. There are 57 lakh people in Delhi who are above 45 out of which 27 lakh have received their first jab.
Polling booth-level officers will visit every house and allot a lot for the vaccination, he informed. There are 280 wards in Delhi. Each week, vaccination will take place in 70 wards.
“A few people are turning up at the vaccination centres for the above 45 years age group. So we have decided instead of waiting for people, we will go to them for vaccination,” he said.
E-rickshaws will also be made available for the people to take them from their houses to the polling booth.
