The vaccination programme at IIEST Shibpur, which had been suspended on May 28 after the institute’s director allegedly misbehaved with those running the centre, resumed on Tuesday. Director Parthasarathi Chakrabarti had denied the allegation.
An official of the institute said they wrote to Howrah district’s chief medical officer of health (CMOH) on Monday to restart the centre. The drive resumed after Covaxin doses were allotted to the centre.
A notice signed by Debabrata Majumder, the professor in charge of the institute’s hospital, says: “…All concerned are requested to bring their original Aadhaar Card at the Vaccination Centre.”
A teacher of the institute said they were “feeling relieved” that the drive had resumed.
The centre has been administering jabs to residents of the campus and people living outside since late April.
