Doda sets vaccination record for 12-14 group

Bhaderwah/Jammu: Jammu and Kashmir’s Doda becomes the first district in the Union Territory to achieve the landmark of administering 100 per cent first dose of COVID-19 vaccine among the 12 to 14 years, officials said on Monday.
The district achieved the feat within two weeks of the inoculation drive despite being the most difficult region with 55 per cent schools from primary to high school level located in inaccessible areas, the officials said.
The officials said the Doda district administration immediately formed a multi-dimensional strategy by constituting combined teams of the concerned teachers of all the primary, middle and high schools with health workers, paramedics and anganwadi workers besides appointing a nodal officer in every block.
“The drive was carried on war footing in entire district from the very first day of the campaign and all the officials were asked to submit compulsory daily report from every school, which resulted in achieving the major feat of 100 per cent vaccination within two weeks,” Nodal officer Vaccination Rana Aarif said.
