Patiala, April 5
Seeking cooperation from religious organisations and public representatives, Patiala Deputy Commissioner (DC) Kumar Amit today urged them to motivate residents to get vaccinated against Covid in wake of latter’s hesitancy towards inoculation.
“To make vaccine available at doorsteps, the district administration has started a series of outreach camps to expedite the vaccination drive under which more than 2,000 people have been jabbed by mobile teams at 17 places in Patiala district today,” the DC said.
The DC accompanied by Corporation Commissioner Poonamdeep Kaur, Additional Deputy Commissioner (G) Pooja Sayal Grewal and Civil Surgeon Satinder Singh visited outreach camps at the Municipal Corporation office, Ward No. 48, and at New Officer Colony, Ward No. 35, in the afternoon today.
He urged councillors of these wards – Senior Deputy Mayor Yoginder Singh Yogi and Santosh Rani – to motivate maximum eligible persons from their areas for vaccination at these camps so that the battle against Covid could be won.
“In order to promote the Covid vaccination campaign in Patiala district, the administration is going to organise mega vaccination camps in Patiala, Rajpura and Nabha on April 9 in which eligible people will be vaccinated,” the DC added.
He appealed to residents of the district not to take the second Covid wave lightly.
