During the event, MO-SDH Moreh, Dr Sweety Thangeo; MO in-charge, PHC Moreh, Dr Shantikumar and other Medical staff provided explanations to dispel the doubts and concerns raised by the civil body leaders in regard to COVID-19 vaccines. They also urged civil body leaders to promote vaccination among the community who had been hesitant due to mistrust and misinformation about the vaccines.
