The mass media team of the Civil Surgeon’s office today met various religious leaders to boost the vaccination drive in the district.

Firstly, the team members met Maulana Muhammad Usman Rehmani Ludhianvi, Naib Shahi Imam, Punjab. After meeting the team members Maulana Rehmani assured official to arrange a vaccination camp in the Field Ganj Mosque and to motivate people from the Muslim community to get their vaccination done. He also assured that he will make sure that all government guidelines are being followed in the mosques, especially in the upcoming Ramdan month.

The teams also visited Dukhniwaran Sahib Gurudwara, Ludhiana, where Pritpal Singh, president, Dukhniwaran Niwaran Management Committee, Ludhiana, himself got vaccinated. He urged the people to get themselves vaccinated as per government’s instructions. He further stated that people should not fall prey to any rumours as the vaccine is completely safe and he himself is feeling well after vaccination and have no problem at all.

Civil Surgeon Dr Sukhjeevan Kakkar said the war against Covid can only be fought if we all make continuous efforts. The Health Department can motivate you and provide you services but it is the duty of people to follow the guidelines strictly. I request everybody to kindly get yourself vaccinated if you are above 45 years of age.
