Khensa achieves 100% vaccine coverage


Dimapur, June 24: Khensa Village in Mokokchung has achieved 100% vaccination of all eligible persons.
A press release from Khensa Village Council on Thursday stated that the target could be achieved due to the combining factors of proper coordination with the Council and convergence between NSRLM Ongpangkong South Block and Department of Health and Family Welfare, Mokokchung.

Grassroots level mobilisation by NSRLM SHGs, church leaders and door-to-door surveillance by the Khensa Village Community Surveillance Team (ASHA, NSRLM Community Cadres and Anangwadi) did a groundbreaking job of capturing accurate data and convincing the mass to take the vaccine, it informed.
“40% of the population had already been vaccinated prior to the special convergence intervention by NSRLM and department of HFW. 313 eligible beneficiaries took the jab during the 1st phase on June 17 and another 255 eligible beneficiaries got vaccinated on June 22 completing the figure to a cent percent,” it added.
The Council thanked the medical team led by Dr Ayangla Saku, DIO Mokokchung and staff; Sangpangjang, EAC Ongpangkong; Dr Asenla, MO and Amenla, Nurse from Sapangya PHC; Tzüdikumla (Kumlong), Nurse; Khensa Medical Sub-Centre staff; Surveillance Committee Khensa; Khensa Students’ Union; Imkongtoshi, Block Program Manager of Ongpangkong South, NSRLM; Maynaro Jamir, Area Co-ordinator, NSRLM, RD; and the cooperation extended by the eligible beneficiaries of the village.
