Divisional Commissioner (Div Com) Kashmir on Tuesday asked District Administration, Srinagar and Director School Education Kashmir to gear up and vaccinate all students falling in the age group 15-17 yeas on fast track basis.

Div Com specially laid emphasis on pacing up vaccination programme in district Srinagar which has been observed to be lagging behind other districts.

He stated that vaccination of this particular group is necessary to protect the young generation from contagious disease and disease related deaths.

Besides, it will help the administration to rethink about opening of colleges and schools in the near future in a secure environment.

The Director School Education Kashmir informed that out of 25000 students in Government schools eighty five percent students have been already covered under covid vaccination programme and are inoculated for their first dose.

However, he maintained that out of 38000 students in coaching centres only 18000 have been vaccinated which is a matter of concern for all of the Srinagarities.

Div Com directed DC Srinagar, Director School Education and representatives of association of Private Schools  and coaching centres to get students inoculated as soon as possible which would be helpful  for the administration in reopening of schools/ colleges again.

Meanwhile, Deputy Commissioner Srinagar, Mohammad Ajaz Assad stressed on CEO Srinagar and Principals to play an proactive role to achieve cent percent vaccination of 15-17 years age group of District Srinagar.

The Representative of Association of Private Schools & Coaching Centres requested the administration to reopen these institutions for some days so that a special vaccination drive can be held in these institutions which will facilitate administration to take a call for reopening of these institutions in near future.
