Hubballi: The students were waiting for their turn with eager anticipation, maintaining a social distance. Those who left the vaccination room with a wide smile on their cheeks may easily be assumed to be relieved after receiving a much-needed dosage of Coronavirus vaccine.
SJMVS Arts and Commerce College for Women students showed up in numbers to receive their first dosage of the anti-coronavirus vaccine. The college has made arrangements to vaccinate its students on the campus with the help of the district administration.
The pupils were equally thrilled about receiving the vaccine and awaited their turn patiently. Those who received vaccine shots snapped selfies and group photos to commemorate the occasion.
Deepa Bailappagoudra, a college student, was overjoyed when she received her first dosage of the vaccination.
She informed hubliexpress.com that she was unfazed by the situation. Instead, she was waiting for the day. Her parents, she added, also persuaded her to get the vaccine.
Similar sentiments were shared by Aishwarya Hiremath and Vaishnavi Acharya. Principle Lingaraj Angadi himself was in charge of supervising the drive and informing the students about the protocols to be followed following inoculation as well as the probable side effects of the vaccine. He also advised the girls to get plenty of rest.
Nikita Kaninavar and Vandana Divate, both second-year BA students, reported receiving the vaccine and now having some protection against the disease. They expressed gratitude to their parents, who had also pushed them to get the immunisation.
Deepa and Jyoti Shivalli claimed they arrived at the university at 9.30 a.m. and waited their turn. They thought the arrangement was excellent.
According to Principal Lingraj Angadi, roughly 80 children received the vaccine on Monday, the figure was good on Tuesday, and the drive will most likely end tomorrow. He stated that they had a total of 1,080 pupils across all branches.
