On Wednesday, the Guwahati branch of Marwari Yuva Manch (MYM), a non-profit youth organization, in collaboration with the Health Department, finished a COVID-19 immunization program for prisoners of Guwahati Central Jail in Pokhara.
A total of 1,182 offenders received their first dosage of COVID-19 vaccination over the four-day session.
The Superintendent of Jail, Ranjit Chandra Baishya; the Jailor, Kalyan Kumar Choudhury; the Assistant Jailor, Nilotpal Kakakti; and the other Central Jail staff members provided unwavering support in making this vaccination camp a big success.
Mohit Malu, president of the NGO, said, “This is an urgent need, and our goal is to vaccinate as many people as possible in a timely and safe way.” The effective immunization of all Central Jail detainees is just a first step toward our goal.”
This is the third camp organized by MYM Guwahati; the first camp, in collaboration with West Guwahati Club, has been operating for the last 15 days at Durga Mandir in Bharalumukh, while the second camp, in collaboration with Ready-made Garments Dealers Association of Assam, is in its seventh successful day at Sarvodaya Healthcare Hospital in Pan Bazar.
“All of our volunteers have worked diligently, and as of today, we have given a total of 5832 doses,” Mitesh Surana, the immunization camp’s Project Chairman, said.
Suraj Jain, Secretary of MYM, Guwahati Branch, worked tirelessly alongside Beejet Prakash, Priyank Jalan, Rohit Sharma, Harshit Ajitsaria, and Akash Sharma to ensure that all convicts received vaccinations on time.
