| Friday | 11th June, 2021
The direction came from the office of Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia, who is also the Capital's Nodal Minister for Covid-19 management.
"Those working as delivery persons are an important demography that we now need to focus on," he said.
The deputy chief minister on Thursday directed the Health Department to partner with e-commerce companies such as Amazon, Flipkart, Zomato, Swiggy and Dunzo to ensure vaccination of the delivery persons working with them, the statement said.
The delivery persons are making sure that people stay in their homes and avoid crowding markets, and so they should be vaccinated at the earliest, Sisodia said.
"They are at an extra risk as their job involves travelling home-to-home and interacting with multiple persons throughout the day," Sisodia noted.
