Uttarakhand Chief Minister Pushkar Singh Dhami launched Russian vaccine Sputnik V in the state on Sunday. He inaugurated the Sputnik V vaccination service started by the Dehradun-based Graphic Era Institute of Medical Sciences.
Before they launched the vaccine, Mr. Dhami and his cabinet ministers observed a two-minute silence as a tribute to late Uttar Pradesh CM Kalyan Singh, who passed away at a Lucknow hospital on Saturday, after prolonged illness.
This is Uttarakhand’s first Sputnik V vaccine center and 100 people got vaccinated on the inauguration day. Uttarakhand has set a target for 100% vaccination by December 2020.
