Udhagamandalam: Nilgiris collector J Innocent Divya has instructed Tasmac authorities to sell liquor only to those who show Covid vaccination certificate.
The administration came to know that tipplers are hesitant to take the vaccine, the collector said. “Tasmac authorities are instructed to sell liquor to people who show vaccination status. The instruction has been displayed at all Tasmac shops in the district. This effort is to cover those people also under the vaccination umbrella.”
“As much as 97% of the eligible population in the Nilgiris has received the first dose. Some entries are missing on the CoWin portal and efforts are on to correct them. People affected by coronavirus could be vaccinated only after three months of recovery. We are waiting for that period for those affected by the virus. The district will achieve 100% vaccination soon,” the collector added.
