COVID vaccination drive to prioritize journalists & their families in Lucknow & other UP districts

If necessary, the health workers should go to the workplaces of the jouralists for their immunization.

The Uttar Pradesh government on Tuesday, issued an official statement that focuses on prioritizing the inoculation of journalists and their families members, who are above 18 years of age. The current surge of new COVID cases witnessed a large number of journalists and their families being affected, which led the UP government to take this important step. Since news correspondents are equivalent to frontline workers due to their line of duty, this decision will definitely steer them towards a safer side.

Prioritizing working journalists & their families

Special instructions have been issued to the related officials that state, there should be separate centres set up especially for the inoculation of journalists and their kin. The government has further added that these working professionals should be prioritized in the vaccination process and if necessary, the health workers should go to their individual workplaces for immunization. This much-needed measure will ensure the safety of such professionals, through the course of this raging pandemic.
