Udaipur : 64 thousand 312 covid vaccines were administered in a single day on Friday in Udaipur district , which perhaps is the highest record of a day for any district in Rajasthan so far.
“In the total 7 centers in Udaipur city and 125 centers in rural areas more than 500 health workers completed the herculean task successfully though our target was only 50 thousand persons” Dr Ashok Aditya, the incharge for Covid vaccination told Udaipur Kiran.
Long queues were seen outside the centers as people eagerly awaited their turns. The longest queue was seen inside Sukhadia university campus where people had collected in large number. Two days ago in Ajmer some 49 thousand 805 persons were vaccinated on a single day.
The health and medical department at Udaipur had announced 50 thousand slots availability a day ago and people had rushed in for registration. Even after 6 pm, many slots were available on the website despite thousands of people having secured their allotments.
In Udaipur city, of the seven centers Mohanlal Sukhadia university held the vaccination of highest 5 thousand people. “The VC assisted us with extra workers including clerical staff scout volunteers and our medical team thus vaccinated the highest number of people here.
