400 faculty, staff members vaccinated at Shoolini Covid camp
In its endeavour towards a safer Covid-free world, Shoolini University, at the initiative of the Solan district health authorities, organised two special camps to vaccinate faculty and staff members.
About 400 faculty and staff members were vaccinated against Covid-19 during the two camps held on the university premises.
As per a notification issued by the National Health Mission, the Governor of Himachal Pradesh had included all staff members of Shoolini University as Frontine Workers for COVID-19 vaccination. During the first camp held last week, around 200 staff members were vaccinated.
In view of the overwhelming response, the district health authorities also organised a second camp, where another 200 staff members were vaccinated. All employees above 18 years of age were eligible for vaccination, said Director Operations Brig Sunil Mehta (retd).
The camp was led by Dr Yogita, Medical Officer incharge, Primary Health Centre, Nauni, and Ms Kanta Kashyap, Health Supervisor, Community Health Centre, Dharampur. Mr Ravi Kumar and Ms Anita Kashyap were the vaccinators. The team also included Ms Upasna Sood, Block Accountant/Data Entry Operator and Mr Arpit Bhatia, Data Entry Operator.
Brig Mehta said all staff members coming to the campus after its opening must be vaccinated. Similar camps would be organised for students as and when the authorities permitted, he added.
