Mohali, October 1

Maximum complete immunisation of masses would ensure herd immunity thus averting the deadliest effects of the next wave of Covid-19, whenever it hits, said Additional Deputy Commissioner (D) Himanshu Aggarwal while presiding over a meeting on Covid management.

The ADC said the district was heading towards 100 per cent vaccination with both doses and the target would be accomplished by October-end. He said: “We were fortunate that our scientists have developed vaccines to win this war against the invisible enemy, and now it is our responsibility to come forward for the jabs.”

He stated those avoiding or skipping this duty are putting their families at risk.

Lauding the efforts of health officials, Dr Aggarwal said NGOs had been playing a proactive role in this mammoth exercise by creating awareness among people and facilitating them with mobile vaccination camps. He assured the health officials of full support from the district administration in its future endeavors to realise the goal of second-dose inoculation of all eligible beneficiaries in the district. — TNS
