“The second and third phases will cover 7 lakh and 20 lakh high-risk persons respectively. The vaccination will be done through pre-registration mode,” the officer said.

In all, 4,000 spots have been identified to administer the vaccination across Jammu and Kashmir, with the help of more than 5,000 trained vaccinators and 19,000 potential vaccinators.

The officer said that as many as 987 ice-lined refrigerators, 795 deep freezers, 11 solar-powered refrigerators, five walk-in coolers and one walk-in freezer were available for the purpose.

At each vaccination spot, at least 100 persons per day would be vaccinated, with the aim of ensuring a total of 4.5 lakh vaccinations daily across Jammu and Kashmir.
