Thiruvananthapuram: Are you looking for places to travel in India but are unsure about seeing the Covid pandemic? Kerala’s tourist destination Vythiri is probably the safest bet for anyone looking to undertake domestic travel. It has become the first fully vaccinated tourism destination in Kerala as part of the State's COVID-19 vaccination campaign to turn all tourism destinations completely risk-free for visitors, the government of Kerala said last week.

Vythiri had its entire population, including tourism service providers, vaccinated during an intensive inoculation drive held from July 13-17.

"In the post-pandemic phase, visitors will be looking for safe and hospitable places to spend time.The Government considers it as vitally important to administer COVID-19 vaccine to the entire stakeholders in all the destinations across the state," Tourism Minister P A Mohamed Riyas said, PTI reported.

This was done as part of the State’s Covid-19 vaccination campaign to turn all tourism destinations completely risk-free for visitors, the government said. The Tourism minister had earlier this month announced the initiative.

Rolled out on mission mode to keep the whole of Kerala ready to receive visitors when the pandemic recedes, the inoculation drive has picked up momentum in all destinations including hill stations, backwater hubs, seaside holiday spots and heritage and cultural tourism centres across the state.
