Cluster Model 2.0 to boost second dose coverage in UP from Nov 1

After successfully administering the first dose of the Covid-19 vaccine to over 66.14 per cent of the total eligible population, the Uttar Pradesh government will now adopt the 'Cluster Model 2.0' from November 1 to improve the second dose coverage in the state.

Earlier, UP Additional Chief Secretary, Health, Amit Mohan Prasad had ordered the health officials to give priority to vaccination drive.

"Giving priority to the full vaccination, the work of applying the second dose using the cluster model 2.0 should be done in those villages/localities where the first dose was successfully administered through the cluster model," Prasad said.

The state-wide launch of the cluster model in June for the Covid-19 vaccination drive in Uttar Pradesh made the task easy, equitable, and seamless, eliminating crucial roadblocks like transport and the digital divide.
