Doraha, January 17

As many as 3,195 persons have been vaccinated during eight camps conducted by the extension cell of Guru Nanak National College here in collaboration with the CII Foundation and the Health Department, Punjab, in the Samrala, Doraha and Sahnewal blocks.

A total of 305 beneficiaries got vaccinated today at the eight camp. As many as 344 beneficiaries were vaccinated on the first day at Ghulal village, 526 and 689, respectively, on the second and the third day in Doraha, 631 were jabbed at Gurdwara Reru Sahib, Sahnewal, and 600 at Gurdwara Somasar Sahib, Tibba. Another 150 were vaccinated at the college during the seventh camp.

The extension cell of the college has been getting the support of the CII Foundation, New Delhi, Punjab Youth Development Board and Health Department in the cause. General secretary of the management committee of the college Harpratap Brar said: “The situation demands that we should join hands to ensure that all residents get fully vaccinated. It should be the duty of every educational institution to assist the Health Department in this mammoth task. The extension cell has been conducting camps which would be continued till 100 per cent vaccination is accomplished,” he added.

Payal SMO Harpreet Sekhon said the Health Department was always ready to send teams for vaccination. The drive continued at Payal even when the entire staff was on strike. I assure that extra staff will be engaged for the purpose so that the beneficiaries get their doses as per their due dates. Together, we can achieve the target of 100 per cent inoculation,” he added.

Lead, Punjab and Haryana Climate Change Resilience, CII Foundation, Chandrakant Pradhan, said: “The reason for providing different venues is that maximum beneficiaries are covered at various spots.”

President of the college management committee Roop Brar, along with committee members and officiating principal Dr Nirlep Deol, congratulated the extension cell which is doing a real service towards humanity by making the life-saver drug available to them on their doorsteps.
