Shyama Prasad Mukherjee (Civil) Hospital has administered a total 47,000 COVID jabs so far.
Shyama Prasad Mukherjee Hospital in Lucknow has started a novel drive to shape public opinion in favour of the city's mega COVID vaccination campaign. In a bid to spread awareness about the vaccination and promote inoculation, the hospital authorities have set up a selfie booth here to encourage and induct more people into the immunity operation. A special 'pink' vaccination booth has also been established here to dedicatedly administer the vaccines to women.
Digital trends to promote COVID vaccination
People who are getting the COVID vaccination at the Civil Hospital in Lucknow are being appealed to click a snap at the established selfie booth at the hospital compound and post it on social media, after the vaccination activity. This is progressing a digital trend on social media networks, influencing and encouraging more people to register for the vaccination slot.
Besides this, special 'pink' vaccination sites have also been set up here to boost vaccination among women. This dedicated booth will also fast-track the long queues for inoculation. Dr Subhash Chandra Sundriyal, Director, Civil Hospital stated that these separate vaccine sessions will ensure that ladies are able to procure the anti-infection jab without any hassle or hesitancy.
An all-female staff has been deployed at these sites, from registration to inoculation to ensure the safety and comfort of the women beneficiaries. In fact, the security and police personnel stationed here are all women officers, informed Dr Sundriyal. So far, 4,000 women have been vaccinated here within a month, while a total of 47,000 jabs have been administered on a whole at the hospital.
