New Delhi: 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 are registered on the spot and are 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 today. 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.

People taking the vaccine here are very happy with this facility. A 22-year-old Suresh Kumar told ANI that this is a very good system.

This facility should be maintained so that everyone can easily take the vaccine. Till now the registration was not being done and there are many people who had such a problem. All such people will now be able to get the vaccine easily, said Mr Kumar.

Another labourer Pawan Sharma thanked MLA Raghav Chadha for this facility and said that it is a very convenient system.

We want this vehicle to come at the time of the second dose also so that we can easily take the vaccine, he said.

NDTV – Dettol Banega Swasth India campaign is an extension of the five-year-old Banega Swachh India initiative helmed by Campaign Ambassador Amitabh Bachchan. It aims to spread awareness about critical health issues facing the country. In wake of the current COVID-19 pandemic, the need for WASH (WaterSanitation and Hygiene) is reaffirmed as handwashing is one of the ways to prevent Coronavirus infection and other diseases. The campaign highlights the importance of nutrition and healthcare for women and children to prevent maternal and child mortality, fight malnutrition, stunting, wasting, anaemia and disease prevention through vaccines. Importance of programmes like Public Distribution System (PDS), Mid-day Meal Scheme, POSHAN Abhiyan and the role of Aganwadis and ASHA workers are also covered. Only a Swachh or clean India where toilets are used and open defecation free (ODF) status achieved as part of the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan launched by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in 2014, can eradicate diseases like diahorrea and become a Swasth or healthy India. The campaign will continue to cover issues like air pollutionwaste managementplastic banmanual scavenging and sanitation workers and menstrual hygiene
