Delhi: AIIMS nurses write to CM Kejriwal, seek vaccination of kin at earliest

[responsivevoice_button buttontext=”Play/Stop Listening News”]

Saying that as the “threat of a third wave looms large”, the AIIMS Nurses Union asked the chief minister to get family members of frontline workers vaccinated “at the earliest on a high priority basis”.

The AIIMS Nurses Union has written to Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal urging him to take immediate steps to get family members of healthcare workers vaccinated.

Noting that most healthcare workers (HCW) at AIIMS have already received both shots, the union wrote, “The family members of HCWs in the 18-45 age group are having great difficulty in scheduling their vaccination. This is a matter of great concern as almost all healthcare workers stay with their families. Many frontline workers have expressed their concerns about delay in vaccinating their kin which may end up in exacerbation of infection as the threat of the third wave looms large.”

They, thus, urged the chief minister to provide vaccines for family members of healthcare workers in the 18-44 age bracket “at the earliest on a high priority basis”.
