Jasudben ML School organises COVID-19 vaccination drive for students between the ages of 12 and 15 years


Jasudben ML School (JML) in Khar, one of the most esteemed ICSE schools in the city, recently organised a coronavirus/ COVID-19 vaccination drive in association with the BMC in the school premises for 80 students aged between 12 years to 14 years on Saturday, 26th March 2022.

The school has managed to vaccinate 80 students through this drive!

The vaccination drive was facilitated and conducted by the BMC and intended to vaccinate all the eligible students born in the years 2008, 2009, and on or before 15th March 2022,  free of charge.

Talking about organising the vaccination drive, the Principal of the JML School, Mrs Damayanti Bhattacharya, said, “At JML, we care for the well being of our children, and they mean a lot to us. We had previously conducted a vaccination drive for our 15 to 18 years old students successfully, and we looked forward to doing the same for the younger children . So, when the BMC began vaccination drives for school children to inoculate the 12-15 age group, we shared a Google form with the parents to be filled . Based on the number of positive responses, we successfully organised a camp with the BMC. I am happy with it’s success since it is definitely a step towards a safe environment and normalcy for students and teachers who are eager to come back to school. We hope to hold similar vaccination drives in the future to ensure that all of our eligible students are vaccinated.”

Eighty students were administered the Corbevax vaccine, with the second dose to be taken after 28 days. Moreover, they weren’t required to face the trouble of registering on the COWIN app or the Aarogya Setu app, as they received their certificates directly after vaccination.
