Amid the Covid-19 vaccination drive, the Delhi government has started a "vaccination on wheels" drive to inoculate labourers against Covid-19 in the national capital.
The government has converted a bus into a vaccination centre. People coming to the 'vaccination on wheels' van in Delhi would be registered on the spot and would be vaccinated inside the van by a hospital team and district administration.
Due to lack of information about registration or due to work, a large number of labours are not vaccinated in the national capital. In order to reach them, the New Delhi district administration has initiated Vaccination on Wheels.
With the help of MLA from Rajinder Nagar, Raghav Chadha, the district administration is reaching different construction sites and mandis and are vaccinating the people working there.
The team of Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital is administering the vaccine to people through this bus that has reached Loha Mandi of Narayana Industrial Area on Monday.
Nursing officer Jhankar, who is administering the vaccine, said the Covishield vaccine is being administered here. "Not everyone is able to reach hospitals. Especially those who work in mandis. Many people do not even know how to register, so it is necessary to provide such facilities to them. People are very happy with this arrangement," added Jhankar.
As per the ongoing Covid-19 vaccination drive, about 1.5 lakh people are being vaccinated in Delhi every day. However, a large population is still out of reach of the vaccine.
