Over 10000 beneficiaries for the first and the second dose have been inoculated as part of this effort at government and private vaccination centres. Due to the COVID-19, lockdown many people were afraid to come out and get vaccinated, as arranging transportation was also a hassle. help bridge the gap between the transportation and the vaccination, the drive was initiated. Sakina Foundation Chairman Mohammed Asif Hussain Sohail’s sole purpose is to safeguard the lives of senior citizens, homeless and vulnerable people who are finding it difficult to access the vaccination. The door to door campaign of vaccination has also been started, so we can win the war against COVID-19. Transportation is also another hindrance as they do not own vehicles. Under such circumstances, the Sakina Foundation has come up with Free Vaccination on wheels to make it easier for people to get vaccinated. More than 50 mobile vaccination vans are stationed at all four zones of the city and also in some districts of Telangana to take the people to the vaccination centres.
