All the Deputy Commissioners have been asked to ramp up the ongoing inoculation drive for all the 18-plus eligible population, while prioritising the super spreaders, vulnerable and the comorbid people in the state. They have also been authorised to plan effective outreach strategies to vaccinate maximum people in the coming days to thwart the much-anticipated third Covid wave. — Vini Mahajan, Chief Secretary
