MC Councillor Mamta Ashu and ADC Jagraon-cum-Nodal Officer Vaccination Dr Nayan Jassal today held a meeting with school principals regarding the vaccination of the children of the age 15-18.

Mainly, the school principals were from the schools located in Ludhiana (West) constituency. This meeting was held at Bachat Bhawan in District Administrative Complex and was attended by principals of several prominent schools.

Amid the surge in the number of Omicron cases in India, the Union government has announced that teenagers aged between 15-18 years would be vaccinated from January 3, 2022 onwards.

Mamta Ashu urged the parents to encourage their children for getting themselves vaccinated. She said that in the larger interest of society and to ensure that our children stay safe, parents should get their children vaccinated at the earliest.

Further, she said that special vaccination camps would be organised in schools so that the maximum number of children can be covered. She said that besides, children can visit any other camp too if they want to get vaccinated.

Nodal officer urges people to get the second dose

Dr Nayan Jassal said that people, who have not received 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 coronavirus vaccination. “Sadly, some people believe that the Covid-19 has become thing of the past, which is not true. As the new variant Omicron has come to light, people should not take coronavirus lightly,” she said.
