The Chief Minister said, “The State government in a bid to achieve 100% Covid vaccination in the state undertakes the Covid Vaccination Completion campaign from 29th November to 5th December, 2021. Under this campaign, verification teams will visit all houses in each polling booth area and cross check the certification process and countersign the certificates for completion of the first dose Covid vaccination for the area”.
