Dindori (Rep. of New Zealand). Amidst all the rumors about vaccination in the tribal-dominated district of Dindori, the Jan Jagran Abhiyan started by Collector Ratnakar Jha has started showing fruitful results. On Wednesday, more than 21 percent record-breaking vaccination was done across the district. Along with the Baigachak area, there is a special enthusiasm among women and youth regarding vaccination in rural areas as well. Till the last one week, the situation across the district was such that only 150 to maximum two hundred people were coming to the vaccination center every day. People were keeping distance from vaccination due to rumours. To speed up vaccination by the collector, it was given the form of a public awareness campaign. Officers, employees, public representatives and social workers were associated with this campaign. On Wednesday, a target was set to vaccinate 2460 people across the district, while 2980 people got vaccinated more than the target. It was told that 121 percent vaccination has been done in the district. It is worth noting that for more than two months, vaccination was being badly affected across the district.
Highest in Mehndwani, Lowest in Karanjia
On Wednesday, maximum vaccination from the target has been done in Mehedwani district area. Here 240 people were targeted to be vaccinated, while 498 people were vaccinated. A target of 315 people was set in Karanjia district area, while only 261 people got the vaccine. In this district only vaccination has been less than the target. A total of 637 people reached Dindori district including district headquarters for vaccination. 345 people were vaccinated in Bajag district, 351 in Amarpur, 348 in Samnapur and 540 in Shahpura district. It was told that people in rural areas are now enthusiastically proceeding to get vaccinated centers without heeding the confusion and rumours.
In this regard, Collector Ratnakar Jha says that public awareness campaign has been started to increase the speed of vaccination in the district. The campaign has started showing fruitful results. More than 21 percent vaccination has been done even from the target fixed on Wednesday. People of Baiga tribe in rural areas are also coming forward to get immunization, bypassing the rumors. Vaccination is the only way to avoid infection. People should get vaccination without confusion to avoid the lockdown. If everyone works as a campaign, then we will be able to make the district corona free soon.
