TIME TO VACCINATE
Vaccines are the best way to protect yourself and others against COVID-19.The pandemic has been one of the greatest health crises in recorded history. Wearing a mask, especially in public indoor settings, offers good protection against the spread of all SARS-CoV-2 variants. The introduction of COVID-19 vaccine is a major step towards reducing the spread of the pandemic and further reducing the associated disease and deaths. The COVID-19 vaccine introduction is the world's largest vaccination drive and roll out requires planning at various levels. Major vaccination efforts are currently underway to immunize the world's population. PM Modi had, on Christmas night, announced lowering of India's vaccination age from 18 to 15 years. Vaccinating children and adolescents may also help advance other highly valued societal goals. Maintaining education for all school-aged children should be an important priority during this pandemic.
Vaccines are one of our most important tools for preventing outbreaks and keeping the world safe. In GISK, with the kind support of the Gajera Trust, Vaccination drive for 2nd dose commenced with online registration on 5th February, 2022. The learners of grade IX, X, XI, XII have successfully been fully vaccinated. Vaccination sessions are held keeping in mind COVID-19 transmission and protective measures from 9 a.m. onwards. The health team from SMC is very supportive and efficient.
