Porvorim Rising to begin Vacci-Assist program for 18-44 yrs age group
Porvorim: An initiative of MLA Rohan Khaunte, Porvorim Rising, will set up camps across all the wards in the constituency as a part of its program “Vacci-Assist” to register people in the age group of 18 to 44 years for the upcoming vaccination drive of the state government. The program would begin from June 01 onwards.
Khaunte said that all the three panchayats would be covered under the Vacci-Assist program that would provide assistance to the people in the age group of 18-44 years to register themselves for vaccination.
The MLA said that the registration does not mean booking of slot as state government has already said that the pre-booking of slots would be done away with during the next vaccination drive.
“The registration will help the beneficiaries to avoid lining up for registration at the centre and it would clear the rush at these centres, which fear to become super spreaders, if not managed properly,” he said.
He said that the camps would be set up at all the three panchayats, and its 31 wards, including Salvador do Mundo, Socorro and Penha de Franca, where each of the ward member would be given responsibility to identify the place for registration.
The volunteers of Porvorim Rising would assist people to register them on the portal and provide the registration number, which can be submitted when they go for vaccination.
Khaunte said that the lack of internet connectivity in certain parts had posed difficulty for the people, who wanted to register on the portal.
