Port Blair, Jan 18: The Directorate of Education has informed that all students whose birth year is 2007 or before are eligible for first dose of vaccination against COVID-19 virus and has appealed to all those who have not taken the vaccine so far may get themselves vaccinated at the earliest in their nearest Vaccination Centres. This will enable the Education Department to resume physical teaching as early as possible and minimize the academic loss.

For any facilitation regarding vaccination, students/ parents may contact class teachers and school Principals and necessary assistance will be provided to them.
