The 'Tika Utsav' (Vaccination Festival) to promote Covid marked the beginning of another major war against Corona, PM Modi said

Every eligible person in the country should get vaccinated, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has said.

Speaking at the launch of the 'Tika Utsav' (Vaccination Festival) to promote Covid-19 vaccination, Prime Minister Modi on Sunday said this marked the beginning of another major war against Corona.

The Prime Minister emphasized the need for testing and awareness. He asked that every eligible person should get vaccinated. This should be the primary effort of both the society and the administration, he said.

In his message on the occasion, the Prime Minister stressed on four points with regard to the drive.

First, Each One- Vaccinate. This means assisting those who can’t go themselves for vaccination, such as illiterate and old people.

Second, Each One- Treat One. This involves helping people who do not have resources or knowledge to get it in getting treatment for Covid-19.

Third, Each One- Save One. "I should wear mask and save myself and others. This should be stressed," Prime Minister Modi said.

The fourth point he stressed upon was that the society and people should lead in creating ‘micro containment zones’.

"Family members and community members should create ‘micro containment zone’, in case of even a single positive case. ‘Micro containment zones’ are a key component of fight against Corona in a densely populated country like India," said the Prime Minister.

The Prime Minister insisted that we have to move towards zero vaccine wastage. Optimum utilization of vaccination capacity is a way of increasing our capacity, he pointed out.

Prime Minister Modi also laid special emphasis on personal hygiene as well as social hygiene.

The launch of the 'Tika Utsav' marks the birth anniversary of Jyotiba Phule. It will continue till April 14, the birth anniversary of Baba Saheb Ambedkar.

"In these four days, we have to make every effort to achieve our goals at the individual level, at the society level and at the administration level," the Prime Minister stressed.
