LAHORE, December 01:
Post Graduate Medical Institute Principal Prof. Dr. Sardar Muhammad Al-freed Zafar has said that during last one month at the Corona Vaccination Counter set up Gynecology OPD of Lahore General Hospital, 850 pregnant women have got benefited of corona vaccination. He added that from November, 01 this unique facility was introduced for the first time in any public sector hospital where women are being covid-19 vaccinated separately and so far the results are encouraging.
He expressed these views while talking to women patients on the occasion of inspection of Corona Vaccination Counter at Gynecology OPD LGH, here today. MS Dr. Amir Ghafoor Mufti, Director Gynecology Dr. Samina Tofique, Ulfat Nazir, Arifa Rehman and others were present. Prof. Al-freed Zafar said that in view of the imminent threat of new type of Corona, it has become imperative for everyone to be vaccinated and there is a need to launch a massive awareness campaign so that every citizen can protect themselves through vaccination. He said that public health experts should come forward to further improve the strategy of prevention and protection against corona as suspension of hospital affairs due to corona has resulted in delay of treatment and surgery to the general public. He pointed out that it was necessary to set up special vaccination counter in the Gynecology Department of all hospitals like General Hospital to alleviate the problems of pregnant and delivery women. He said that there was a need for doctors and other medical personnel treating corona like other diseases to be able to provide medical facilities to these women in a safe environment without any fear.
Principal PGMI said that it was important to raise awareness among the patients and their relatives about the diseases and their “counseling” so that people could get vaccinated for their safety without any hesitation as experts from Federal and Provincial Governments are also working on it. It is also advised that the only solution to reduce the risk of corona and to be safe from this epidemic is vaccination of every person, he added. Prof. Al-freed Zafar appealed to the citizens to take advantage of the free vaccination facilities provided by the Government and save their lives and the lives of others. Similarly, he also enquired from the women present at the counter about corona vaccination facilities being provided to them.
