Around 85% of eligible students in government schools have been administered the Covid vaccine against 42% in private schools.

“The Directorate of Education has targeted 100% vaccination by January 30, and this now appears within reach,” said Sisodia. “Vaccination is the most effective way to remain safe from Covid and it is important that all eligible students get vaccinated at the earliest. In 12 of the 15 education districts, 85% students of Delhi government schools have been vaccinated. In around 300 schools, 90% of the eligible students have got the jab.”
