West Bengal: Alumni vaccination camps in schools, colleges | Kolkata News


KOLKATA: Many alumni of schools, colleges and other institutions have gone on vaccination drives, bringing underprivileged people to their campuses and getting them inoculated. After paying for the vaccination of the support staff in their alma maters, they are now entering slums and scouring pavements to bring in underprivileged people for vaccinations.
Don Bosco Liluah alumni association has given the first dose to 600 slum and pavement dwellers in the past two days. More such camps will be organised soon, said president of the alumni association, Biswanath Trivedi. Salesian fathers of Don Bosco Park Circus are vaccinating many poor people in the Park Circus area in association with the local police station, said Father Bikash Mondal.
The alumni of NUJS had ferried more than 200 support staff from remote areas to the EM Bypass campus for free vaccination on Saturday. “We will do so for the second dose too,” said Aritri Roy Chowdhury.
About seven-eight doctors of RN Tagore Hospital — all alumni of the Ramakrishna Mission Narendrapur — will hold a vaccination camp on campus for support staff and the poor in the locality. The alumni of St James School are continuing with their vaccination drive for the underprivileged.
