The drive in vaccination facility for the convenience of senior citizens started in the Durg district from today under the vaccination campaign being run by the state government to prevent the Kovid-19 epidemic. Elderly citizens are getting vaccinated sitting in their car. They have to rest for half an hour after vaccination in the car itself. A medical team is present here. After half-an-hour observation everything is allowed to go home if normal.
This facility has brought much relief to the senior citizens. This campaign is becoming very useful for the elderly due to rest with social distancing. Today, the elderly above the age of 80 came for vaccination. There were many of them who had problems walking. He said that for this reason, the decision to vaccinate had been withheld till now. His family also said that the worry of vaccinations of the elders of the house was removed today from this comfortable facility. For this, the parking of Surya Shopping Mall in Bhilai has been chosen. It is a place full of shady peace. On the first day of the facility, MLA Shri Devendra Yadav and Collector Sarveshwar Narendra Bhure were also present. The MLA and Collector also took feedback from senior citizens. Senior citizens said that this facility was very good, this innovation of administration was very good because the heat is very high so it was difficult to stay late in the vaccination center. With this, our big concern was overcome by having this facility available while sitting in the car. We were also very concerned about social distancing, but because the vehicle got vaccinated in a very short time, our concern has completely gone away. Municipal Corporation Commissioner Shri Rituraj Raghuvanshi was also present on the occasion. The program at Surya Shopping Mall is being done by the Bhilai Municipal Corporation under the guidance of the district administration. It was reported to all WhatsApp groups of senior citizens only yesterday evening, in addition to this, senior citizens were informed in this regard through the press, electronic media and social media. Since this morning, a large number of senior citizens reached Surya Mall and are taking advantage of vaccination. This campaign is seen to be very successful on the very first day and more than 60 senior citizens have got vaccinated within 3 hours of the commencement of the session.
