Vaccination has to be a collective responsibility of us all: Vice President

Newdelhi:1/7/21:The Vice President of India, Shri M. Venkaiah Naidu today emphasized the need to educate people on the importance of covid-19 vaccination and urged all stakeholders to work collectively to achieve the target of full vaccination by year-end.

The Vice President made these remarks on the occasion of Doctors’ Day during a book presentation to him by the well-known nephrologist, Dr. Georgi Abraham in Chennai today. The book titled as “MY PATIENTS MY GOD- JOURNEY OF A KIDNEY DOCTOR” chronicles the professional journey of Dr Abraham as a doctor, educationist, and researcher over the past four decades.

On this occasion, Shri Naidu underlined the need to address vaccine hesitancy in some sections of the population, especially in rural areas. There is a need to dispel fears in some sections and the vaccination drive should turn into a truly pan-India ‘Jan Andolan’, he said and urged the medical fraternity to take a lead in creating awareness and educating the people on the importance of getting themselves vaccinated.

Stating that community support is critical in our fight against Coronavirus, the Vice President said that those having vaccine hesitancy should be made aware of the fact that they are putting their own lives and those of their family members at avoidable risk.

Mentioning the theme for this year’s Doctors’ Day – ‘Save the Saviour’, the Vice President stressed the need to ensure safety and well-being of our doctors who are rendering yeoman service during this unprecedented health emergency caused by COVID-19.

He also paid tributes to a renowned doctor, educationist, and freedom fighter, Dr. Bidhan Chandra Roy whose birth anniversary is commemorated as Doctors’ Day.
