Imphal: Manipur chief minister N. Biren Singh has urged the people to join their hands together towards achieving 100 percent vaccination rate in the state before Christmas so that they could celebrate Christmas and New Year with much zeal and enthusiasm.
Biren made the plea during the flagging off function of Covid Vaccination Express for 13 districts of the state held at Khuman Lampak on Thursday.
Covid-19 situation is improving as there is decline in the infection rate in the state, he said and appealed to the eligible persons to get vaccinated at the earliest.
The chief minister thanked CARE India team for providing such humanitarian service of providing vaccination at people’s doorsteps across the state at this juncture.
A total of 120 vehicles and staff have been provided by CARE India for Covid Vaccination Express under their CSR initiative. The NGO will directly fund the hiring charges, staff expenses, operational expenses for the Covid Vaccination Express vehicles and staff. The Covid Vaccination Express vehicles are equipped with necessary equipment, vaccines and medical personnel who will travel to every nook and corner of the districts to vaccinate people at their doorsteps.
Biren had flagged off the Covid Vaccination Express for Imphal East, Imphal West and Senapati Districts last month.
