Prime Minister Narendra Modi will interact with healthcare workers and beneficiaries of COVID vaccination programme in Goa at 10:30 AM today via video conferencing. Goa has completed 100 percent first dose vaccination of its adult population.
The efforts undertaken by the state government that resulted in successful vaccination coverage include organisation of successive Tika Utsav for community mobilization and grassroot outreach, targeted vaccination for priority groups such as vaccination at workplaces, old age homes, and divyangjans and continuous community engagement to remove doubts and apprehensions, among others. The state also overcame challenges like Cyclone Tauktae to ensure rapid vaccination coverage.
Goa Chief Minister Pramod Sawant will also be present on the occasion.
