The second phase of ‘Har Ghar Dastak’ campaign will be launched in Assam’s Lakhimpur district on November 29.

The aim of the ‘Har Ghar Dastak’ campaign is to ensure that no person is left to be vaccinated for Covid19 during the vaccination exercise.

This was stated by Lakhimpur deputy commissioner Sumit Sattwan in a press conference on Sunday evening.

Speaking to the media, deputy commissioner Sattwan said the Har Ghar Dastak campaign will continue till December 5, 2021.

Sattwan said, “There will be individual monitoring of vaccination drive on the basis of prior research list in the district.”

“A verifying team consisting of administrative and medical personnel will make lists of left-out and reluctant persons for vaccination,” the Lakhimpur DC said.

Har Ghar Dastak is a campaign to carry out house-to-house Covid19 vaccination of people, who are yet to take a dose and those whose second shot is overdue.
