All the safety norms were followed to the highest standards. It is commendable to note the efforts our government is making to safeguard our children from potential threat of these diseases that too free of any cost. No child reported any side effect after the vaccination today and in the previous campaign too. I appeal to all parents of children falling in the age group of 5 to 15 to get their children vaccinated. Only then we can make our country and the world free of diseases like measles and rubella” Said the Principal.
Few parents too walked in to see their wards getting vaccinated in the school. Chairman Mr. Sahiljit Singh Sandhu and Director Dr. Kirat Sandhu Cheema made a visit to the immunization center in the school and interacted with the children to encourage them.
