Hyderabad: Governor Dr. Tamilisai Soundararajan on Wednesday called for an intensified campaign to motivate all the eligible people to get vaccinated.
She directed the Indian Red Cross Society (IRCS), Telangana branch, to coordinate with all the district units to take a massive campaign to create awareness among the people and facilitate the Covid vaccination.
“The country is presently witnessing the world’s largest vaccination drive. Our country has emerged self-reliant in vaccine development, production, supply, and vaccination. It is a great opportunity for all the eligible to get vaccinated,” Dr. Tamilisai Soundararajan added.

The Governor directed the officials and the Raj Bhavan dispensary medical officers to coordinate with the Niloufer Hospital paediatric surgeon for ensuring an early surgery to treat the ailing daughter of a Home Guard working at Raj Bhavan, here.
She has also appreciated the eligible Raj Bhavan officers and staff members on getting vaccinated.
“We (Raj Bhavan staff) must be role models to others. Ensure that all the eligible staff members are vaccinated,” she directed.
As part of her initiative to be available to the visitors, the Governor has virtually interacted with a delegation.
