“Most of the non-teaching employees in the school are underprivileged,” said Mousumi Kar, who has been teaching at the school for 25 years. “The husbands of many non-teaching employees are carpenters and masons. They had lost their livelihood during the lockdown and are yet to recover financially.”

Fifty-one persons, including teachers and non-teaching staff and their family members, got their first dose as part of the drive conducted in collaboration with the AMRI Hospitals group.

An official of the residents’ association of Urbana said they had conducted multiple camps to vaccinate 1,200 of their residents.
