A paid vaccination camp was held at Community Center of sector 36 in Noida. This came as a relief to residents finding it difficult to book their slots at government centers amidst vaccine shortages after the vaccination drive was expanded to all adults. Nearly 200 people under the 18-45 years age group were inoculated with their first dose of Covishield.
The camp was open to 45 plus age bracket as well for their first or second dose. RWAs took the opportunity to get this society staff registered. Also some residents got their domestic helps and support staff vaccinated at the camp. Each beneficiary had to pay ₹1,050 for the shot and service.
Simple and Efficient Process at Noida Vaccination Camp
Residents had to register on the Co-Win portal, make online payment to Fortis, submit details to their RWA who in turn forwarded it to the hospital. The health care staff, equipment and an ambulance were provided by the hospital.
Although the drive was expected to be carried out in batches of 5-10 at a time, however, there was a queue. The organizing staff made sure the waiting residents were taken good care of by providing seating, bottled water and juice packs. Safety protocols for social distancing were also followed diligently. Prior to taking the jab registered entries were verified, blood pressure was checked for every vax recipient.
RWAs, FONRWA and Fortis came together for the Noida Vaccination Drive
This Noida vaccination camp was made a success by the ardent efforts of local RWA teams of sector 31, sector 36 and Federation of Noida Residents’ Welfare Association (FONRWA) in collaboration with Fortis Hospital in sector 62 Noida. The Noida Vaccination camp was visited by the sitting MLA Pankaj Singh and former Union Minister and Member of Parliament Dr Mahesh Sharma. Later corona warriors of Fortis Noida were presented with potted plants and rose stalks in appreciation of their efforts.
