Goa says it has vaccinated 100 per cent population with first dose of COVID vaccine
Sawant informed on Thursday that the state government has set a goal of fully vaccinating all adults in Goa by October 31.
Goa Chief Minister Pramod Sawant on Thursday announced that all COVID-19 immunisation eligible recipients in Goa had received the first dosage. Himachal Pradesh announced earlier this month that adults had acquired 100% Covid immunisation with the first dose. Sawant informed on Thursday that the state government has set a goal of fully vaccinating all adults in Goa by October 31.
Speaking to reporters, he stated that the state has finished 100% of the first vaccine dosage and plans to complete the second dose by October 31. Further, the Chief Minister stated that the state's Covid problem is under control. He explained that while instances in neighbouring states like Kerala and Maharashtra have increased, they are still under control. He advised everyone to take the second dose on time.
Sawant stated that Ganesh Chaturthi would be observed in the state in accordance with COVID-19 norms.
Earlier, addressing the session, Himachal Pradesh CM Jairam Thakur said, "Himachal Pradesh has made significant progress in administering the first dose of vaccines to 100% population. We aim to administer a 2nd dose to all by November 30." Acknowledging the state's achievement, PM Modi asserted that there should be no scope for leniency of any kind until the vaccination drive is completed.
