“When we doctors are confident enough, there is no reason why others should fear it. Whoever gets their turn shouldn’t hesitate to go for the vaccination”, said Dr Aradhna Shukla, senior resident, AIIMS Raipur.

A lab technician from Raipur district hospital V K Verma said that he is 58-year-old and happily gone for vaccination process so as to perform his job without the fear of getting infected.
