My Covidshield Experience

Seshadri Baskar

Some inputs I wish to share on the vaccination issue. Originally I registered through a contact in Trinity hospital based on the portal info and when we went and asked for the same the attendant was not even aware of such a portal had been made on them and said there is no such facility.

We moved on Kaveri Hospital and there was a serpentine queue of oldies and we were told that it will take one full hour to get the Jab Done. It has a fee of Rupees two hundred and fifty per shot. The programme was cancelled and it was booked next day in Kalyani Hospital well in the morning and as per the allotment we were eligible to get the jab done before five pm.

But when we went there around 2.30 this noon we were told that the allotted hundred numbers of Jab was over and we will be eligible to get vaccination only tomorrow.

We drove to PHC. My Jab is over. I had a pleasant experience today at the PHC and the process was over in just ten minutes. I showed the necessary documents and explained my current health issues and after a pressure checkup (it was quite normal) I was vaccinated and after taking ten minutes rest I moved on to my scheduled works.

The PHC staffs were so cordial and handled the complete exercise very neatly. Total number of people who had undergone vaccination in this unit is around one hundred so far. I could also meet my few old contacts who were served tea and biscuits months ago during the peak of Covid times over there and exchanged pleasantries. Next shot is due by this month end. Thanks GCC for making the exercise easy and simple.

The location I had chosen is Dvn 125 San Thome UPHC, 14A, Appu 2nd Lane, Mylapore, Chennai-4. This is Near Indian Overseas Bank on Santhome High Road and MSV’s House.

Please make use of this opportunity and spread the information to your contacts so that all can benefit.

Interested can reach me on 98410 33888 so that I can guide better.

Please carry two proofs with you and admit honestly your health issues if any. Please forget not to get few tablets while you come back from them which you will have to use for two days.  What more, the PHC’s are clean, neat and the staffs are very courteous. This is a good initiative by the central and state government and we should thank them for this as an apolitical person.
