BHOPAL: Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan has said that the vaccination drive will be launched at 7,000 centres on June 21óInternational Yoga Day.

The drive will begin at 10am. Chouhan has further said that a vaccination motivator will be sent to each centre.

The motivator may be a renowned person, such as a minister, a legislator, a member of a crisis management group, a religious leader, a social worker, an artiste, a player, a litterateur, a journalist, a Padma-awarded teacher or an officer.

People above 18 years of age will be vaccinated free of cost, because getting vaccinated is the only way to keep Covid-19 at bay. Therefore, one should get the vials for protection, as well as inspire others to do that, he said.

At a video conferencing in Mantralaya on Thursday, Chouhan said that the way the state had brought the second wave of Covid-19 under control, it would not let a possible third wave have any impact on the state.

Chouhan addressed all crisis management groups in the districts, blocks, wards and villages through video-conferencing.

The corona pandemic has again begun in many countries, such England, so people should remain vigil about it.

Everyone should wear masks, avoid crowds and maintain social distancing norms, Chouhan said. He said that arrangements should be made for bringing elderly people to the vaccination centres and those who cannot come to the centres should be vaccinated in their homes.
