Health workers cross river, trek hills to vaccinate remote villagers in Dima Hasao

Health workers across the country are working out to vaccinate the people against the COVID-19. Determined to do their duties, health workers in Assam’s Dima Hasao district are visiting hard to reach remote areas in the hill district to inoculate the people.

A team of health workers, including doctors, undertook a strenuous journey, crossing a river on their way to reach Ditkkchera in the hill district to administer COVID-19 vaccine to the people of the remote area.

According to the reports, a team of health workers of Harangajao PHC in Dima Hasao, headed by Dr Kishore Kemprai, had crossed Jatinga river on a boat to reach Ditokkchera area for COVID-19 vaccination.

Dr Kishore Kemprai said that, it was a very difficult task for them to reach out the people who are living in the remote hill areas, but all health workers are doing their jobs to fight against the Coronavirus.

“Many times, we have crossed river, trekked hills areas to reach remote villages. It is our duty to provide vaccine to all eligible persons,” Dr Kishore Kemprai said.

To reach the remote villages and vaccinate people, the Dima Hasao health workers have crossed the rivers several times on dumper truck, JCB and on foot when water level receded.
