New Delhi : Seniors Hub Dwarka, during this COVID pandemic period, had started MISSION VACCINATION drive under which group vaccination for the first dose were got done for over 120 senior citizens of Dwarka irrespective of their being our members or not in private hospitals. Human Care Medical Trust (Manipal Hospital) being the main hospital facilitating them.
Senior Citizens are now finding it difficult to get the second dose due to non – availability of adequate quantity of doses. Moreover, a walk in facility available during the first phase, has been withdrawn posing problems to the senior citizens who mostly are not tech-savvy. Many of the senior citizens have, in fact, returned from the Centres without vaccination.
Seniors Hub Dwarka has now decided to approach Delhi Govt to allow all senior citizens Walk-ins for the 2nd dose in all private and government hospitals/ dispensaries for senior citizens.
Mr Anil Parashar, a member of the Seniors Hub say that this will go a long way in helping the senior citizens of Delhi.
Mr RK Jain, President of the Seniors Hub says that this NGO has been formed to facilitate human connectivity which is possible only if we help each other and where required approach the authorities for the benefit of senior citizens.
Mr Ravi Jaitley, General Secretary says that encouraged with the last petition on opening of the Indira Gandhi Super Speciality Hospital, a 1725-bedded hospital, members had approached him to approach Delhi Govt on this issue and which other way to start another online petition. http://chng.it/RTrgWZZCXB Experience says it is working quite effective.
