Health Department organizes vaccination camp at Panchkuian Cemetery in Agra
In Agra, on the request of social worker Naresh Paras, a vaccination camp was organized by the Health Department at Panchkuian graveyard in the city on Tuesday. During the camp, 50 people living in huts there got the first dose of the vaccine, people told that for the first time a camp has been set up inside the cemetery.
A vaccination camp was organized at Panchkuian graveyard under the joint aegis of CRY and Health Department. Hundreds of families live in slums inside the cemetery. When child rights activist Naresh Paras conducted a survey here, it was found that all the people are immigrants who sell dholak and balloons. Some families pick up scraps and beg and none of them have vaccinated. The health department has no information about them. Naresh Paras, as a Vaccine friend of CRY, is making such people aware of vaccination. When Naresh Paras made them aware too, he agreed for vaccination. Under the direction of ACMO Dr. RC Mathur, Tikarath of Health, in collaboration with CRY, organized a vaccination camp and gave the first dose of vaccine to about five dozen people. During this time most of them could not get the vaccine due to no ID.
Vaccination of such people is necessary
Naresh Paras said that these people keep in touch with everyone. They also touch people while selling goods and begging, so it is very important for them to be vaccinated. Community Health Officer Dr. Harvendra Singh, Dr. Narottam Lal and Satendra Pal Singh did the vaccination of the people. ACMO Dr. RC Mathur was also present on the spot.
Corona crisis is increasing in Agra
Three people of a family who returned from Dubai and another were found infected in Agra on Monday. With this, after getting four more new patients on Tuesday, there have been 14 active cases of Kovid in Agra. All have been home isolated and their samples have also been sent to Omicron for testing.
There is a possibility of error in vaccination
For a long time in Agra, cases of getting the message about the dose without getting the vaccine are coming to the fore. Sunit Chauhan, a resident of Khandari, has complained to the Health Department that messages of vaccination of four different people have come on his mobile and their certificates have also been made. However, the health department is brushing it off as a technical mistake.
