Hamirpur, May 11
Mediapersons in the age group of 18 to 44 got their first dosage of vaccine as the district administration organised a special vaccination camp at Bachat Bhawan here today. As many as 50 mediapersons from various organisations, including print, electronic and social media organisations, were vaccinated at the camp. Debashweta Banik, Deputy Commissioner, and Dr RK Agnihotri Chief Medical Officer remained present during the camp.
The DC said Chief Minister Jai Ram Thakur had decided to declare mediapersons as frontline workers in the state. She said those who could not attend that camp today could go to their nearest health facility and get vaccinated. She said media had played an important role in making people aware of programmes of the government and standard operating procedures during the pandemic. — OC
