Lucky draw of fully Covid vaccinated people: Winners to get cash prizes, travel passes and more! Check details

In its battle against Coronavirus, India began the vaccination program on January 16, 2021. With the availability of the country-made Covishield and Covaxin vaccines, the pace of the vaccination drive also has increased.

However, there are several issues due to which people mostly in the rural areas are not showing interest to take the jabs. Meanwhile, the Union government is considering taking a new initiative to increase the pace of vaccination in these areas and encourage people to get vaccinated.

According to news agency PTI, the government is mulling over taking different steps including weekly or monthly lucky draw programs for those fully vaccinated against COVID-19.

People who have got both doses of the vaccines will be included in the lucky draw and the winners will be given household items like kitchen appliances, ration kits, travel passes, cash prizes with an aim to encourage others to take the anti-Covid shots.

The government is also likely to appoint the vaccinated people as ‘ambassadors’ and oriented about the government’s ‘Har Ghar Dastak’ initiative.

Workplace vaccination can be organised at private and government offices and other workplaces. The employees will get badges having vaccination messages such as ‘I am fully vaccinated, are you fully vaccinated too’ to encourage their colleagues to get the doses.

Government officials said that around 43 per cent of people have taken both doses of the COVID vaccine till date. Likewise, around 82 per cent of the citizens have got the first dose of the vaccine.
