In the Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir, as a part of COVID vaccination drive, the Academy of Art, Culture and Languages today organized a vaccination camp at Jammu for the employees, young artists, writers and workers associated with the Academy. AIR Jammu Correspondent reports that as many as 200 young artists and other frontline workers in the age group of 18-44 were vaccinated at the K L Sehgal Hall of the Academy in Jammu.
The artists and others working for the awareness camps and other culture activities got the first dose of the vaccine during the drive. The academy has categorised the artists as a priority group for vaccination as the nature of their duties is such that they come in public contact during duties. The Cultural department has urged all artists working with the Academy of Art, Culture and Languages to come forward for vaccination as it is important for their safety and their families as they have to perform their duties and require protection from the risk of contracting the infection.
