The goal of the 75-day “COVID Immunization Amrit Mahotsava” campaign, which began on Friday, is to increase the preventive dose of COVID vaccination among the eligible adult population.

At government COVID Vaccination Centers, this specific vaccination programme, which is a part of the Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav holiday, aims to provide free preventative injections to all people who are qualified (18 years of age or older) (CVCs).

In a virtual meeting with State/UT Health Secretaries and NHM MDs, which was presided over by Union Health Secretary Rajesh Bhushan, all eligible beneficiaries were urged to give a vigorous and ambitious push toward full COVID-19 vaccination coverage by getting immunised and getting covered with a precautionary dose.
