More Lucknow schools throw open doors to vax students


More schools in Lucknow have opened their doors to set up vaccination centres on their premises to enable individuals between 15 to 18 years of age to get the jab on campus, so that students don’t have to go to hospitals, CHCs and PHCs.

La Martiniere Girls’ College has decided to allow students of other schools to get vaccinated on their campus. Principal Aashrita Dass said, “The vaccination camp at LMGC to be held on January 9 is open to all between 15 and 18 years of age. It starts at 10 am and the vaccine to be administered is Covaxin. Students of any school are welcome to get vaccinated so that they stay safe and protected against the Covid-19 infection.”

The Lucknow Public Collegiate in Ruchi Khand I, Sharda Nagar, also organised a Covid–19 vaccination camp on Saturday. The camp was an initiative of the district administration which sent a team of trained nurses/doctors to vaccinate individuals, said principal Jawaid Alam Khan, who appealed that children must get vaccinated on the school campus only because they will not get exposed to Covid-19 infection at vaccination centres, which otherwise remain crowded.
