The senior citizens were deprived of this facility and they returned home disheartened. It has also been informed that there will be no covid vaccination on these 9 PHCs even on Sunday as children’s vaccination is carried out even on Sunday.

Even after vaccination, the mandates like wearing masks, maintaining social distance must be strictly followed. People must understand that mask is the only way to stay safe. One must also eat well and exercise daily to boost immunity.
