Telangana: Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation launches special vaccination drive | Hyderabad News – Times of India


HYDERABAD: With an aim to achieve 100 per cent Covid-19 vaccination in the next two weeks, the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) has started a special vaccination drive in the city on Monday.
The vaccination drive is likely to be carried out in 5,200 residential colonies, localities and slums across GHMC and Secunderabad Cantonment Board (SCB) areas.
The GHMC has deployed 175 mobile vaccination centres in its limits and an additional 25 vehicles in the SCB area.
The civic body aims to vaccinate all eligible people by September 9.
Telangana chief secretary Somesh Kumar visited a vaccination centre at the Old CBI quarters in Khairatabad to oversee the arrangements made for the special drive.
“During this special drive, a team would visit each and every household and identify those who have not been vaccinated. The team will motivate the people to get vaccinated and they will be informed of the vaccination centre in their area together with date and time in advance. The main objective of this special mop up vaccination drive is to make Hyderabad a 100 percent Covid-19 vaccinated city,” said Kumar.
Staffers from the civic body’s entomology wing, Asha and Anganwadi workers will visit the households and prepare a list of those yet to be vaccinated and the same will be handed over to the Health Department.
Officials said that a sticker will be pasted on the door of every household in which all residents have been vaccinated.
Also, to make sure all the eligible people are vaccinated, a verification strategy is also being put in place by the authorities overseeing the arrangements.
After the vaccination process is completed in a colony, a team will be sent to that particular area to cross-check the details.
A ‘Fully Vaccinated Colony’ certificate will be given to the resident welfare associations after all the eligible people in their colony are covered.
