To spread awareness among the frontline workers about taking coronavirus vaccine jab, a police constable in Madhya Pradesh, Indore recessed up like a ‘Yamraj’ - the God of death in Hindu mythology, on Wednesday got himself vaccinated at a government hospital in Indore. Jawahar Singh opted for this unique idea so that every frontline and healthcare worker comes forward to take the vaccine jab without hesitation.
This is not the first time Singh has donned the attire of 'Yamraj' to spread awareness. Earlier, in April 2020, Jawahar Singh had appealed to people to stay indoors and spread information about the dangers of coming out during the lockdown.
The Inspector-General of Indore Zone, Harinarayanachari Mishra yesterday said that the police officials in Indore are being given the vaccine shot now. "The priority is being given to the officials and staff who are above 50 years of age," Mishra said.
Madhya Pradesh state has 1,951 active cases while a total of 2,51,121 patients have recovered from the disease by now.
As many as 70,17,114 healthcare and frontline workers have been vaccinated against COVID-19 across India till now.
