Chandigarh, April 15

UT Adviser Manoj Parida on Thursday said those eligible for coronavirus vaccine but not taking it should be named and shamed.

He said, “Resident Welfare Associations should help the administration by persuading eligible residents to take coronavirus vaccine. Defaulters should be named and shamed.”

Parida said, “In other states people are waiting in long queues to get it, while our facilities are underutilised.”

“Those who are not taking vaccine will be termed defaulters in Chandigarh. They will be named and shamed,” he said in a statement issued by the Department of Public Relations, UT.
