The government of Uttar Pradesh, under the leadership of CM Yogi Adityanath, has set up special “pink booths” to encourage women in the state to be vaccinated against Covid-19. These booths have become operational in all 75 districts of the state from June 7 (Monday).
The move was taken during a review meeting on Sunday, chaired by Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath.

All mothers and sisters should get the ‘tika jeet ka’ vaccine as soon as possible.”

The state administration has ordered that at least two women-only special booths be established in each district for targeted immunity-booster drives. Women between the ages of 18 and 44 will be served in one booth, while those over 45 will be served in the other.
The Uttar Pradesh government has directed that these camps be set up in district women’s hospitals or district joint hospitals. According to government orders, such camps can also be set up in different tehsils.
