Under the ‘Har Ghar Dastak” campaign, the door-to-door vaccination against Covid-19 is going on in full swing across the district. In a press release, Civil Surgeon Dr. Adarshpal Kaur and District Immunisation officer Dr Girish Dogra said that a total of 18, 44, 723 beneficiaries in the district have been given anti-Covid shots till date. As many as 11, 03, 040 people have been given first doses whereas 7, 23, 038 people have been given second doses. Apart from this, 18, 645 beneficiaries have been given booster doses or third doses. She said that health workers are going door to door in cities and villages to administer anti-covid vaccines to the beneficiaries.

    Emphasizing on complete anti-Covid vaccination, the civil surgeon said that every beneficiary should be vaccinated without wasting time as the vaccine gives the body the strength to fight the pandemic. She added that the vaccine is completely safe and everyone should get it without any fear. She also expressed concern over the fact that several people are still reluctant to get the first or second injection. She said that health workers sensitize such people about the benefits of vaccination but despite all this they are not ready for vaccination. Covid vaccine is being provided free of cost.

       Dr Adarshpal further said that it is very important to wear a mask to stay away from the disease. She once again appealed to the people to not step out of homes aimlessly and if there is an urgent need to move out, the face should be covered with masks and necessary distance from each other should be maintained. It is also important to wash hands frequently with soap and water. The Civil Surgeon also asked people to visit hospitals in case of any serious problem only. Instead, they should contact the health department's helpline 104 for the expert advice.
