ASHA and Anganwadi Workers Motivate Sawai Madhopur Residents To Get Vaccinated | COVID-19


Rumors about the COVID-19 vaccine have reached far flung areas in Rajasthan. Our Community Correspondent Poonam Verma reports from Sawai Madhopur in Rajasthan that many people are wary of taking the jab. "I went to the vaccination centre but returned as I was feeling scared," said one of the women interviewed by Poonam. This is largely due to the perception that vaccination leads to either death or infertility.

However, continuous efforts by local ASHA Workers and Anganwadi workers have bore fruit. Now people are less scared of the vaccine. Every ASHA worker has visited every household for a minimum of 3-4 times to motivate people to get vaccinated. "We used to even go to people's houses in the night time. This is because a lot of working people, especially the elderly people are available at their homes in the night time," said one of the ASHA Workers talking about the awareness campaign for vaccination.

Today, people are taking the vaccine themselves and report little to no side effects from it.
