Assam to fully inoculate all eligible by January 15: CM Biswa Sarma

Guwahati: Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma has announced that the Assam government has set January 15 as the deadline for completing Covid-19 vaccination with both doses for the state's estimated 2.1 crore eligible population.

In an interview with the media, he stated that the first dose would be administered to all people over the age of 18 on November 20. According to Sarma, who was the Health and Family Welfare Minister in the previous government led by Sarbananda Sonowal, Assam has around 2.1 crore people who are eligible for vaccines. According to government records, Assam's current total population is over 3.5 crore. According to the latest Health Department report, as of Friday night, 2,79,96,544 people had received one dose, with 78,96,412 receiving both doses.

According to the Chief Minister, nearly 95 percent of Assamese adults over the age of 18 have received their first dose, and the remaining 10 lakh will be vaccinated by November 20. He claims that the 10 lakh are a "vaccine-resistant" population, many of whom live in three hill districts and are either unwilling to take the vaccine or are elderly citizens who are unable to travel to vaccination centres.

"The government has planned an all-out door-to-door vaccination campaign for these 10 lakh people, and they will be vaccinated. The exercise would necessitate a great deal of persuasion and motivation on the part of the participants "Sarma remarked.
