The management of the centre briefed the Team that around 4172 beneficiaries have been vaccinated as of now, and today reportedly 205 persons were vaccinated.
Sema, during the visits observed that Nagas are not coming forward for vaccination as they have not realized that vaccination is the greatest weapon to fight against the pandemic.
During the visit to Lions Club vaccination centre, Kikheto was dismayed to notice that only one local Pastor had availed vaccination after he had attempted for more than two weeks.

He urged the Medical department and District Administration to disseminate information about the availability of vaccine, place and other related information to the people through print media and other social media platforms.
District Immunization Officer, Dr. Rebecca informed that due to poor connectivity, vaccination of all age groups in rural areas is allowed ‘on the spot’ registration from May 31. (Page News Service)
