The civic administration has acquired the girls hostel at Gandhi Nagar to run its vaccination centre. At present vaccination is being done at Indira Gandhi Rugnalaya, NMC’s hospital. This hostel is near the IGR. During the vaccination programme conducted at Indira Gandhi Rugnalaya, people faced a lot of problems. The staff at Indira Gandhi Rugnalaya is very co-operative but due to more COVID activities in the hospital and people becoming desperate to get vaccine faster, it became difficult to fulfill everybody. Most people approached Dr Parineeta Fuke, the Corporator with a request to find the solution.
She realised that if the hostel were used for vaccination, the load on the hospital too would get reduced. She had a talk with Mayor Dayashankar Tiwari who immediately agreed to co-operate. Dr Parineeta Fuke had written a letter to Mayor to provide girls hostel to run the vaccination programmed. The hospital and the adjoining Nagpur University’s women’s dormitory have taken an immediate decision to start round-the-clock vaccination. Due to this, the people were finding it difficult to do the regular vaccination. The hostel was handed over to NMC and the civic body immediately started the vaccination centre site of Nagpur University near Indira Gandhi Hospital has been facilitated for vaccination.
