COVID-19 vaccination to be carried out on all days of April

New Delhi: In a significant step to exponentially expand the countrywide COVID-19 vaccination drive, the Centre has decided to operationalize both public and private sector COVID Vaccination Centres (CVCs) on all days of month of April (from today till 30th April).

The Centre has written to all States and UTs today and asked them to make necessary arrangements to provide COVID vaccination in these CVCs on all days of the month including gazetted holidays during April.

This step has been taken after detailed deliberations with the States/UTs on 31st March to optimally utilize all COVID Vaccination Centres across the public and private sectors to ensure rapid increase in the pace and coverage of COVID vaccination.

This decision is in line with the graded and proactive approach employed by the Government of India along with the States/UTs for COVID-19 vaccination.

The vaccination exercise as a tool to protect the most vulnerable population groups in the country from COVID-19 continues to be regularly reviewed and monitored at the highest level.

The Government had already decided to start COVID-19 vaccination of all people above 45 years of age from 1st April based on the recommendation of National Expert Group on Vaccine Administration (NEGVAC).
