The Chamba Welfare Association, a registered NGO, has accused the government of being apathetic for not providing Covid-19 vaccination to people above 80 years of age at their doorstep.

Members of the NGO said most of these people were suffering from serious ailments.

They were either unable to go to vaccination centres or had to face a lot of inconvenience while doing so.

In a statement issued here today, Chamba Welfare Association president AK Bhardwaj and general secretary SK Kashmiri urged the government to direct the health authorities for providing the facility of administering Covid vaccination to such people at their doorstep.

For this, the office-bearers suggested that the government to constitute departmental teams to administer vaccine to the elderly people at their doorstep besides providing other health services, thereby preventing the spread of virus.
