Beneficiaries who have skipped the second dose of the vaccine will be informed of the importance of the complete dose of the vaccine through SMS, and telephonic conversations, stated Additional Chief Secretary, Public Health and Family Welfare, Mohammad Suleman. The administration has engaged more than 32,000 employees of the National Adolescent Health Programme (NAHP) along with one lakh COVID Volunteers and 4.5 lakh Brigade Members to connect with the residents across the state.
