Imphal: The second phase of the Mass Covid Vaccination programme for Sagolband AC began at Bijoy Govinda Centre Friday. The highlight of the vaccination programme was MLA Sagolband AC, RK Imo Singh, getting himself vaccination at this centre.
The vaccination is open for all people from Sagolband who are above the age of 18 years. Any person can come and get registered at the vaccination centre and for vaccination. RK Imo while visiting the vaccination site said that the Centre has been opened to cater to the services of the people of Sagolband and nearby areas.
He further stated that Mobile Vaccination Centres have also been opened from Friday at Amudon, which will be followed by Thangjam Leirak and Ingudam Leirak on June 26, LDA Soibam Leikai on June 28 and so on to be continued till the round is completed.
The MLA also informed that more than 50 percent of the people have been vaccinated till now, and stress that “we will never be safe till all of us are vaccinated”. However, he admitted that there are some localities which has very less vaccination ratio and said that there will be a push to increase vaccination in those areas, thus a double strategy to do mobile vaccination across localities and normal vaccination at Bijoy Govinda which will be opened till we complete vaccination to the desired level.
RK Imo requested all the members of Sagolband Constituency Progressive Committee and locality clubs to help in organising the vaccination program to make it successful by making people come out for vaccination. He thanked the Health Department Staffs and DC Imphal West for coordinating and making this possible. RK Imo Singh further said that, there will be a Vaccination Reward to the locality committee/club which has the best vaccination ratio by the end of the month of August. The three best polling/localities with the best vaccination ratio will be given a prize of Rs 50000/, Rs 30000/and Rs 20000/. He also thanked all the members of SCPC and locality committee members for working so hard for the people during such tough times of Covid.
