Nagaland is all set to boost up its number of vaccinated citizens. Since the time when Covid-19 numbers started to shoot up, people were eagerly waiting for their turn to get vaccinated and attain protection against the virus. The state has prepared this drive while coordinating with the management unit at every level while keeping the base level at the front so that the people can have an easy reach.
For any information, one can reach the chairman of their Panchayat, or the ANM, ASHA, Anganwadi, and also the in-charge medical officer.
Under the program, the ‘Covishield’ vaccine is planned to be rolled out for people 18-44 years of age and above. The process for the registration will be the same as the rest of the nation from the 8th of June to the 18th of June.

Aim of the Drive
The ten-days intensive vaccination drive is aimed to cover the rural areas as well as urban districts of Nagaland. “Other than the COVID Vaccination Centres shared by the district officials for online registration and booking, all other sessions will be on-site registration and vaccination,” said the Principal Director for Health and Family Welfare Dr. Neikhrielie Khimiao.
As per the health secretary, the preference during the drive will be given to disabled people. As the cases have started to decline in the state, the purpose to induce an intense drive is to protect the people from a third wave.
