Ramp up COVID-19 vaccination of school students: Delhi govt



The Delhi government directed its officials to take speedy measures to ramp up COVID-19 vaccination of children in the age group of 15-17. “All DDE (Districts) and DDE (Zones) will visit vaccination centres under their jurisdiction and check the vaccination procedures on a daily basis. Further, they will visit schools to check the record that is being maintained with the principals wherein the students are informed about the vaccination schedule,” the  Directorate of Education (DoE) said in an official order. “The officer will also randomly call the students and parents to find out whether they were informed about vaccination and whether they have been vaccinated or not. The heads of schools will also have to increase mobilisation efforts to ensure more than 80 pc children in each school turn up for vaccination,” it added.
