GHMC has taken the 100% Vaccination Drive seriously to inoculate the entire population at least with one dose of COVID-19 vaccine before the onset of the third wave. Accordingly, door to door vaccination drive is being conducted. If an entire household is vaccinated at least with one dose, a sticker is being pasted on their door about the same.
But then, the response has been disappointing in the Old City. People are not interested in getting vaccinated. The Old City people are answering 'Not Willing' when the staff visits for the home survey. Vaccination drive continues to go on at a snail pace in Mughalpura, Chandrayangutta, Karwan, Yakutpura, and Malakpet.
The vaccine hesitancy seems to be high in the area. Officials are trying to educate the people about the benefits of vaccination but in vain. Meanwhile, 1,333 colonies across GHMC were completely vaccinated, as of Thursday night. 12,72,36 persons were vaccinated during this special drive.
