That message is sent by the  concerned staff to other groups of villages in the jurisdiction. The next day the citizens go on the same date they are called, so there is no crowd as there is no person present waiting for vaccine.

Citizens who go for vaccination are given a token on there mobile number. Citizens line up in token order. Senior citizens are given tokens and rest in the shade. When the number arrives, the other employees take them for vaccination.
