Speaking on the resumption of the vaccination process Saghir Siddiqui, Regional Chief Operating Officer, KMC Hospital, Mangaluru said, “The second wave of COVID-19 has caused a devastating effect in India. Vaccination is one of the main weapons to fight this war against COVID-19. We have resumed our vaccination process and anyone eligible for taking the vaccination can register and book their slot through or Aarogyasettu app. I request all the people who are eligible to come forward and get themselves vaccinated. We need to get back to the fearless everyday life we used to live in and to live a full life void of fear. This is only possible when the mass spread of the virus is restricted. Getting vaccinated along with following the safety protocols like wearing a mask, social distancing, and regular sanitisation is the only way to fight the pandemic and make sure that ourselves and our loved ones are safe and healthy. I would like to sincerely appreciate the efforts and hard work being put in by the doctors and the staff to make sure that all the safety protocols are being adhered to strictly, and creating a safe and secure environment for all the patients at the hospital.”
