Ludhiana, May 13, 2022: Regarding the vaccination of those aged above 12 years, Deputy Commissioner Ludhiana today urged the school principals, teachers and parents to encourage their children to get themselves vaccinated so that we can weed out Covid19.
In a press statement issued here today, the DC stated that parents should encourage their children for getting themselves vaccinated as vaccination helps in fighting the Covid, even if one gets infected. She said that in larger interest of the society and to ensure that our children stay safe, parents should get their children vaccinated at the earliest.
She said that to cover maximum children above 12 years of age, special vaccination camps are being organised in the schools. She said that besides, children can visit any other camp too if they want to get vaccinated.
ADC Jagraon-cum-Nodal Officer Vaccination Dr Nayan Jassal said that people, who are yet to receive their second dose of vaccination, should also come forward and get themselves fully vaccinated. She said that a large number of residents are yet to receive their second jab of Covid19 vaccination, because sadly, such people believe that the Covid19 has become thing of the past, which is not true.
She said that a special vaccination drive for those above 12 years of age was organised at 339 schools/educational institutions in the district today and more such drives would be organised in coming days as well.
She informed that some people still have their misconception that Covid19 vaccination is not safe and that is why, they are not coming forward. “Such people should understand that if anyone wants to travel to any part of the globe, they require a Vaccine Passport Certificate, that they would get only when they are fully vaccinated,” she said.
