Nagpur: Surjit Singh (53) claims that his doctor has asked him not to take the coronavirus vaccine because of kidney problems. At the time when the Additional Chief Medical Officer, whose name is Dr. Narendra Bahirwar, has asked for the doctor’s number to verify the basis of medical advice. Then Surjit replies evasively. Due to which it becomes clear that they were trying to leave the jab on trivial grounds. Auto driver Azhar Ali (21) has said that he is afraid of vaccines because he believes it can kill him.
It is a surprise that the family members of both Azhar and Surjit have already been vaccinated against covid. This doesn’t stop Surjit from raising his voice over this asking the Nagpur municipal corporation team to leave. Nor does it bother him. The team has to mark the number of people vaccinated against covid at home and then proceed.
Regional Medical Officer Dr. Ateequr Raheman Khan, however, is able to allay Ali’s fear completely. And moments later Ali takes his first covid nap. After the government has started the campaign for the population of 18, they have delayed it by 5 months. Azhar has said that it is mandatory for him to know but he was told very bad things about the vaccination of covid. And he thanks the health team and Nagpur municipal corporation for helping him recover at home.
