This photograph was taken this morning at our local ward Municipal Hospital where I got vaccinated against Covid 19. The template contains messages in Marathi, our local language, to the effect that I have got myself vaccinated and am safe from Covid 19; and so should you get vaccinated and become safe.
It is expected that such photographs will spread through social media and persuade sceptics into taking the vaccination.
Including twenty minutes of driving time to and from the hospital the total time taken between leaving my home and returning was 90 minutes. That also included 30 minutes of post jab observation and a follow up speech by the attending doctor.
I have been vaccinated with Covishield manufactured locally at Pune. I have to take a booster shot after six and before eight weeks again. The second shot however will be at a different hospital where the registration process need not be followed and one can simply walk in and get the shot.
I was most impressed with the efficiency and enthusiasm of the staff. Totally unexpected from a government run organisation.
