Assam too has achieved a positive response in the field of vaccination. A week-long vaccination drive was organized from November 22 to November 29, where many participated.
Apart from that, an election machinery system was used to conduct the vaccination drive. Every polling officer was given the responsibility to visit every household and bring the people to the designated vaccination centre. In November 5, Assam created history by administering 2.87 crore doses, among which 2.02 crore received the first dose.
The Assam government has set a goal to vaccinate all the remaining eligible population before January 15, 2022.
