International Nurses Day: Nurse vaccinates 6,000 people for COVID-19 in Kashmir

- Advertisment -

A nurse in Pulwama working at District Hospital Pulwama has vaccinated over 6000 people against the deadly COVID-19 pandemic.

Tabasum Ara, a resident of Payar Village of Pulwama, which is around 3 kilometres from the main town, comes daily and vaccinates over 300 persons daily.

Tabasum says that since the vaccination process started on January 16 this year, she has single-handedly vaccinated over 6000 people at the hospital.

“On a daily basis, I vaccinate over 300 persons now and motivate dozens of people to take the vaccine,” she says.

During the initial stage, everyone was hesitant but she has motivated hundreds of healthcare and frontline workers to take vaccinations and after proper counselling, everyone is taking the jab happily.

“Vaccinating people in times of pandemic is challenging as one has to go home in the evening. You don’t want to become a COVID carrier for your family,” she says.

She says that those who are yet to take a vaccine must come forward and get it at the earliest because if anyone tests positive even after the vaccine, the person remains mostly asymptomatic and the severity is very less.

“Vaccine is a must to beat the deadly virus, so everyone must come forward to get it and beat COVID,” she says. (KNO)
