Covid-19 has highly impacted the world, leading to difficulty in functioning socially and people unable to go about their everyday lives since it was discovered. However, the impact of the pandemic and its consequences are felt differently depending on one’s status as an individual and as a member of society. As a result, people try to adapt to working from home and homeschooling their children to reduce being exposed to the virus which leads to various health issues and high death rates. The pandemic also affected the social and economic conditions of people globally. To enable the younger generation to overcome the above challenges, Premier gave opportunities to students to get vaccinated appropriately.
The event was supervised by professional health workers and teachers of the school to ensure it was conducted smoothly and to also help the students maintain social distance among themselves.
