Since the outbreak of COVID 19, the whole world is looking forward to vaccine companies. The vaccination drive started in early 2021 and the whole country is spending time on their mobiles, laptops to book a slot for the vaccine.
But What about the people who live in remote places where electricity is hardly available how they will book vaccine slots for them well the health workers from the Cacher district of Assam have given the solution and set an example by reaching the remote villages on the boat and vaccinated over 200 persons.
Health workers under the National Health Mission were seen crossing the beel to reach the Jabda Village in the Katigorah constituency to administer the vaccination to the villagers.
Burhanul Hoque Choudhury, Block Programme Manager Jalalpur Block PHC informed NE India Broadcast that a team of health workers consisting of six members including women staff reached the village after treading through a few kilometers on-road and later crossing a beel in a boat covering a time distance of at least an hour to reach Jabda village.
In the village, 120 persons in the age group of 18-44 years and 103 persons above 45 years of age have been vaccinated on Saturday. We have covered vaccination of at least 90 percent of the village population, Choudhury also informed.
