In Chhattisgarh, all the citizens, especially the youth, are showing a lot of enthusiasm for the COVID vaccination. From today, all the citizens of the state are being registered for COVID vaccination through the CoWIN portal. The facility of on site registration is also available at the Vaccination Centres.
The population of the age group of 18 to 44 years in Chhattisgarh is about one crore 35 lakhs. About 12 lakh people of this age group have been inoculated with COVID vaccine so far.
