Many are still in denial to get vaccinated even now, as there are myths and false rumors looming in our society.

The rumors about Doctors getting different vaccination is not true neither are the many rumors that is spreading in social media. For any queries about Covid-19 or Vaccination, you can call or message the Covid Control Room at (+91) 6909 959 376.
MOHFW has informed that Covid-19 vaccine is safe in pregnancy. Pregnant women or lactating mothers should get vaccinated as soon as possible to avoid increased risk, to both the mother and the baby, if affected by the virus. Those who have any kind of allergy are also safe to get vaccinated. But it is important to inform the doctors and nurses of your medical history before you get vaccination.
Getting vaccine will increase the immune response. Vaccinated people would reduce the risk of spreading the virus including new virus variants. Similarly, unvaccinated person would endanger increasing risk of spreading the virus.
Dr Vashum further informed that the medical team is paying a home visit to vaccinate cancer patients, those who are bed ridden and those who had done kidney transplant or hip replacement. The team is travelling to villages and PHCs for Vaccination drive every week.
The villagers can help the medical team by mobilizing those who are getting the jab. Such compassionate work by Tashar Village has been greatly appreciated.
