The Punjab Chemists Association (PCA) has written to Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh requesting him to include pharmacists, medicine traders, support staff and families in the preference list of the Covid-19 vaccination programme.
Medicine dealers are in the essential service sector and therefore most vulnerable to the infection as they are the first contact point with public while dispensing medicines. Surinder Duggal, state president, Punjab Chemists Association
Surinder Duggal, state president of the union, said: “The PCA is an apex organisation of chemists and distributors with over 24,500 members, including medicine professionals and traders (retailers and wholesalers) in the state. Medicine dealers are in the essential service sector and therefore most vulnerable to the infection as they are the first contact point with public while dispensing medicines.”
“We feel it’s extremely important to protect all of them on priority to keep them healthy in challenging times amid pandemic. We must be included in the priority list of vaccination,” Duggal added.
