Shimla, October 13

The tribal Kinnaur in Himachal has become the first district in the country to achieve its vaccination target against Covid-19, the district administration said.

It has met its vaccination target of fully vaccinating 60,305 eligible people, Kinnaur Deputy Commissioner Abid Hussain Sadiq.

The achievement is particularly significant given the region's topography, and also how prone it is to calamities like landslides, as seen this year, all of which proved to be major challenges to the vaccination campaign.

"The medical and paramedical staff labored hard to ensure that no eligible persons were left without vaccination," the deputy commissioner said.

Himachal earned the distinction of becoming the first state in the country to administer the first dose of vaccination to 53.77 lakh persons above the age of 18 on August 30, 2021.
