Continuing the awareness drive to curb the spread of Covid-19 in the region, the Mass Education and Media (MEM) Wing of the Health Department has intensified its second phase to aware people about the vaccination drive and to dispel rumours.

The awareness teams have been working on the directions of the Deputy Commissioner and the Civil Surgeon. Officials have been ordered to focus on ensuring that people are aware of Covid guidelines and follow them diligently. Along with it the teams have also been asked to make sure that maximum number of people come forward for vaccination so that immunity of people can be boosted.

Civil Surgeon Dr Sukhjiwan Kakkar said tackling the virus is not a one man job and the government alone can’t end the pandemic. He said if people want to return to normal life they should follow all necessary precautions and should come forward for the vaccine. He added that people should not believe in any kinds of myths or rumours about vaccine. Rather they should understand that the vaccine is being given to public only after extensive trials were conducted. So they should not worry about quality of vaccine. He said, people above 45 are most prone to this virus and for some this has become deadly. So in order to avoid reaching that situtation people should always wear mask, wash hands, maintain adeqaute social distancing and get vaccinated for the benefit of themselves and for their family.
