Dindori (Rep. of New Zealand). In the midst of a possible third wave of corona, people are also negligent in getting the second dose of the vaccine. The pace of vaccination seems to be slowing down in the district since the last fortnight. Even after the deadline has passed, many people are hesitant to get the second dose of the vaccine. The situation is that about 81 percent of the people above the age of 18 years in the district have received the first dose of the vaccine, while the condition of those who got the second dose of the vaccine is only 13 percent. A list has been prepared of the villages which are in the worst condition in terms of vaccination. Now there is a plan to run a comprehensive campaign with special focus in these villages. It is worth mentioning that there are more than a dozen villages in the district where 100 percent people have got the first dose of the vaccine.

Neither mask nor follow physical distance
People are being negligent in getting the vaccination done in the district. Also, to avoid corona infection, they are neither following physical distance nor wearing masks. Due to this big negligence, the risk of corona infection can increase in the district. Corona victims have started being found in Jabalpur for the last few days. In such a situation, it is not less than a sign of danger for the district as well. Collector Ratnakar Jha has appealed to the people to come forward and get the vaccination done. He said that people can avoid the corona crisis only with the vaccine.
