A gift of time
FREE COVID 19 VACCINATION INITIATIVE
The vaccinations and the possible end of the pandemic has an entirely different meaning for the palliative care patients. It means being able to interact with loved ones without fear. Being able to enjoy simple moments that remain in their lives.
‘A gift of time’ initiative by Alpha aims at providing vaccines free of cost to palliative care patients and their families.
Why are we running this initiative in spite of free vaccines from the government?
Most of the palliative care patients being bed-ridden find It difficult to reach vaccination centers. The global shortage of vaccines and issues faced in booking a slot adds on to the challenge. The palliative care patients suffering from life threatening illnesses like cancer have lower immunity and risk infection from crowded vaccination centers.
How do we carry out the service?
Patient registration is done easily at one of our 17 link centers. The vaccinations are administered at the link center by qualified medical practitioners following all COVID protocols. We also offer a free pick-up and drop facility for the patients.
How many vaccines do you wish to sponsor? A single dose costs Rs 750.
