Ladakh becomes first Union Territory to vaccinate 100% of its population

With great effort, Ladakh has become the first Union Territory to have vaccinated with 100% of its population with at least 1 dose of vaccination and reports have also suggested that the Union Territory has vaccinated the entire ‘guest population’ which includes hotel workers, migrants and Nepalese citizens working in this region.

As per reports, 89404 eligible people have been given the first dose of their vaccine while 60936 people got their second jab. The Ladakh government also vaccinated 6821 Nepalese citizens who live and work there and considering Ladakh’s extreme weather conditions this is a huge achievement.

Ladakh was able to achieve this target within just 3 months and the administration has given priority to hotel workers, public transport drivers as they are considered as frontline workers in the tourism industry, besides labourers from the tourism industry were also prioritized.

Officials said that they had a surplus of Covid-19 vaccines so instead of wasting it, they started vaccinating ages 18-44 people and achieved 100% level.
