Target of 100 per cent vaccination among divyangs has been achieved in 26 villages under the Shahkot Community Health Centre. Teams of the Health Department have been providing the differently-abled with the facility of getting the jab at their doorstep.

Under the Covid vaccination campaign, more than 80 per cent of the persons with special needs have been vaccinated in 60 villages. Teams of the department are working continuously so that the target of 100 per cent vaccination can be achieved in all 148 villages in Shahkot. Meanwhile, vaccination of other beneficiaries is also being done continuously.

CHC Shahkot Senior Medical Officer (SMO) Dr Amardeep Singh Duggal said on the instructions of the department, a special campaign had been launched for the vaccination of differently-abled persons in the area. “Under this, all disabled persons above 18 years of age are being vaccinated. Also, those who are in critical condition and are unable to go to the hospital or vaccination centre, are being vaccinated at their homes. More than 300 persons have been benefited under the door-to-door vaccination campaign in 148 villages under the CHC so far,” the SMO said.

Drive completed in all seven villages of Muridwal centre

Block Extension Educator Chandan Mishra said under the vaccination campaign for differently-abled persons, 100 per cent vaccination has been completed in all seven villages of the Muridwal sub-centre. The target could be achieved with the efforts of ASHA workers, villagers, ANM Satveer Kaur and multipurpose health worker Baljinder Kumar, he said. He further said in villages where more than 80 per cent vaccination had been done, complete vaccination could not be achieved due to the beneficiaries’ denial or other medical reasons. Soon this target will be achieved in all villages, he said.
