Silchar, May 7: Assam State crickter Krishanu Dutta, who was jabbed the first dose of COVID-19 vaccine along with his brother and cousins on the first day of vaccination for 18-44 year age group shared his experiences after coming out of the vaccination centre at Desh Bhakhta Tarun Ram Phukan HS School.
" I got jabbed at around 12:30 pm and talking to you after two hours since, I am feeling a lot relaxed. There has been no complication noticed so far after taking the vaccine. All I would urge upon people to register and get themselves vaccinated so that fatalities, (if attacked by the virus) could be avoided," Dutta said.
However, he was quick to add that the arrangements need to be streamlined the vaccination centre and other places where people would assemble for the jabs. " I along with by brother Kaushik Dutta and cousins were in the second slot for the day which should have started at 11am. When we reached, we could see people in the first slot were given the dozes. We urged the people to maintain social distancing and eventually saw things falling in place as we had our vaccines administered," the young sportsperson maintained.
It may be mentioned that District Immunisation Officer Dr Sumona Naiding had earlier mentioned that 100 persons per vaccination site in Silchar urban area would be given the jabs. There are five such vaccination sites demarcated in five schools within the Silchar Municipal area, Dr Naiding said.
