89 vaccinated on Day 1
A total of 89 beneficiaries in the age group of 18-44 took the vaccine on the rollout day at Government Polyclinic, Sector 26.
Only one session for 100 beneficiaries was organised today in the district due to the weekend lockdown.
Ishan (24), a resident of Sector 9, said he had a smooth experience with no hiccups.
“The vaccine gives us and people around us protection against the coronavirus. Sooner or later, everyone will have to get the vaccine,” he said, urging people to take the vaccine.
“I am feeling okay. The experience was fine,” said another beneficiary after taking the vaccine.
Dr Meenu Sasan, District Immunisation Officer, reiterated there would be no walk-in for people in the 18-44 age group.
