A COVID-19 vaccination camp was organized by the Megaa Moda PVT. Limited for its employees on 19th and 20th July 2021 at its plant premises in association with the Health Department, Govt. of WB. Interested people were asked to produce their contact number, work identity card, and Aadhaar card in the vaccination camp.
A doctor with a team of para-medical staff administered the vaccination drive. Over 500 workers and staff of the company were vaccinated during the camp. Awareness was raised among the people on the importance of safety measures for the rapid spread of viral infection.
Vaccination is the need of the hour to check the spread of the coronavirus as a vaccine activates the immune system without making us sick. Many challenging infectious diseases can be deterred with this not-so-complicated yet impactful way. Often people generate lifelong immunity when they have had an infection. However, some ailments are critical that may lead to severe complications. The vaccination mission is for obtaining this immunity without any of the threats of suffering from the disease. By vaccinating, people can activate the memory of the immune system.
We know that when a significant population is vaccinated against the disease, there will be very few people left to whom the disease can be spread. Thus, herd immunity is built up to protect the limited who have not been inoculated.
Mr. Yogesh Gupta, Director of Megaa Moda, present on this event, said, “Megaa Moda Private Limited is a private limited company that deals in processing, packaging and exporting of shrimp. It has earned a name in the global seafood market by its registered brand known as ‘MEGAAA.’ The company is distinguished as a Two Star Export House under the Ministry of Commerce and Industry, Govt. of India.
