Ludhiana, August 5

Special camps were organised today for vaccination of pregnant women and lactating mothers against Covid. Total 774 pregnant women and 651 lactating mothers were vaccinated. Civil Surgeon Dr Kiran Gill said 339 pregnant women were vaccinated in urban areas and 435 pregnant women were vaccinated in rural areas. Total 265 lactating mothers were covered in rural areas and 386 lactating mothers covered in urban areas while 78 session sites were set up in Ludhiana.

Dr Gill said during the second wave of Covid, many pregnant women were affected and some even succumbed to it. She said in wake of the expected third wave of Covid, the risk of infection in pregnant women and lactating mothers, who have already been vaccinated, would be greatly reduced. —TNS
