Reluctance to take vaccines in remote villages! How health workers are successful, know – News18 Bangla

New Delhi: Amidst the Corona pandemic, vaccination programs across the country were challenging for health workers. The health workers reached the remote areas of the country. One such experience is featured in History TV 18’s new documentary ‘The Vial – India’s Vaccine Story’. It tells how residents of Malana in Himachal Pradesh were hesitant about the vaccine. But the efforts of the health care workers and the district administration got those residents covered by the vaccine.

Village Malana in Parvati Valley Communication system is not modern. But the challenge for health workers in this area was greater. The villagers claim that they are descendants of Alexander the Great and hence their culture is very different. They believe in their local deities and view outsiders with suspicion.

What the official said in ‘The Vial – India’s Vaccine Story’

Kullu District Deputy Commissioner Ashutosh Garg said about the matter. He said, “We realized that we were lagging behind in Malana. So the entire team including the district administration and health officer decided to go to the village and discuss with the residents. Malana residents are not very receptive to outsiders and we were no exception. However, after some help from the local panchayat, we convinced them to listen.”

He added, “Once two-three people are vaccinated, the rush continues. On the first day of the vaccine drive, 700 people were vaccinated. Our motto was that no one should be left behind.”
