“Students have to be vaccinated by July 7 as per the schedule of the vaccine drive and the VCs should try to ensure vaccination of all students by the said date and if required this could be extended by two to three days,” Narayan, who holds the higher education portfolio, told the vice-chancellors during a virtual meet.
