Chief Minister Conrad K. Sangma has directed deputy commissioners to intensity Covid vaccination drives in order to achieve a cent per cent mark before Christmas.
The Chief Minister interacted with the deputy commissioners at a review meeting today and asked them to try and achieve the mark as envisioned by Prime Minister Narendra Modi during his recent virtual review with the Chief Ministers.
He also set the target of 9 lakh vaccinations in the State in the next 40 days.
Stressing on the urgency of the matter the Chief Minister said, “We must remember the times we had multiple deaths and inadequate facilities to handle the cases. We must use that experience to intensify our efforts to save lives”.
“We must assume that the third wave is coming, this should be our motivation to work on ways to save lives through vaccination”, he added.
