Vaccination drives start in highrise societies of Noida

Noida: It is very important at this point for more people to get vaccinated. In the wake of the same, societies in Gautam Budh Nagar are organising vaccination drives to ensure that the residents get vaccinated. The Apartment Owners Associations (AOAs) are participating to facilitate the same by collaborating with hospitals.

The Covishield vaccination Camp was organised by the Suptertech Capetown AOA in collaboration with the team of Fortis Hospital at Club 2 of the society in Sector 74, from 9 am to 6 pm on Sunday to protect against coronavirus. Almost 360 people were vaccinated in this camp. Residents had registered online for vaccination.

Senior people and other people who could not register online were given the facility to register offline after reaching the club. Fortis Hospital, Noida was coming for a vaccination camp at the society at 1,050 rupees for residents and 850 rupees for maids and helpers for per dose of Covishield, available for the 18+ age group and for the 1st or 2nd dose seeker and for 2nd dose a gap of 84 days.

In the last 2 months, unfortunately, 24 people have died due to coronavirus or subsequent complications within the society. For this reason, people were serious about their health. From last year to now, more than 500 people were infected.

Arun Sharma, AOA of the Capetown society said, “There was tremendous enthusiasm among today's vaccination camp and all the vaccine beneficiaries followed the physical distance with discipline and got vaccinated.”

He added, “People expressed their gratitude to volunteers who supported vaccination like Sachin Singla, Girish Single, Bhupendra, Krishna Sharma, Praveen, Yash Rawat for organising this vaccination camp. I thanked the facility team for making arrangements. Soon, more such vaccination camps will be organised in Cape town.”

One of the early vaccination drives in a highrise society of Gautam Budh Nagar district is taking place at Prateek Laurel society, Sector 120, Noida. This upscale society in Noida houses above 1,500 apartments and around 6,000 residents. The AOA in collaboration with Felix Hospital successfully initiated vaccination for the residents.

The large turnout of the residents is indicative of a tremendous response and willingness amongst the residents for vaccination. It is the intention of the AOA to vaccinate maximum residents along with housekeeping staff and maids in its fight against this dreaded virus and the AOA hopes to achieve 100% vaccination by the end of June.

Dr DK Gupta, CMD, Felix Hospital and Mr Rajiva Singh, President NOFAA inaugurated the vaccination drive in Prateek Laurel Society.

The federation chooses the cluster approach by smaller societies for covid vaccination camps (CVC) in highrise societies. For example, Mahagun Maple, Sector 50 is organising a covid vaccination camp on June 3 in collaboration with a hospital. NOFAA is following societies to collaborate for this vaccination program.

The numbers indicated below are approximate:

1. Mahagun Maple: 130
2. Shivkala Apartments: 20
3. Shubhkamana Apartments: 13
4. Silver Estate: 7
5. Windsor Greens: 20

Rajiva Singh, President of NOFAA said, “We can replicate many such similar arrangements in various societies where the federations play an important role for such camps. Next we plan to have one CVC in Stellar Kings Court with Felix on June 4.  More societies, who have smaller numbers of residents needed to be vaccinated, can collaborate in a similar manner.”
