Meghalaya Health Minister, A. L. Hek on Wednesday released two music videos by the Meghalaya Medical Services Association (MMSA) at a function held at Umsawli Stepdown Hospital in the presence of Director of Health Services (MI), Dr Aman Warr.
The Khasi and English music videos are titled “Ka Dawai Ban Iada” and “No Can Stop Us”.
Their objective is to spread awareness about the importance of vaccination in protecting the citizens against the COVID-19.
Hek congratulated the MSSA for taking up the initiative to come up with the much needed music videos to further promote the ongoing vaccination drive in the state.
“Despite their busy schedule and giving their life to protect others, in spite of so many things, you sacrifice your life, your family, your loved ones – still you have time to promote (vaccination) to save people,” he said.
The health minister also said people tend to be hesitant to listen to politicians and those in the community on the need to take the vaccination.
“Today when the experts are saying nobody can stop us… I hope everybody will go for the vaccination,” he added.
Earlier, a member of the MMSA said that the sole message of these two songs was to urge the people to come forward for Covid-19 vaccination because out of only 9 lakh of 32 lakh population have willingly got themselves vaccinated in the state.
According to her, the songs also enlighten the citizens that vaccination is the only solution against Covid-19. The MMSA also urged people to understand that if they get vaccinated, they will be protected from complications and deaths due to novel coronavirus.
