Raigarh. A young female doctor from Chhattisgarh has received the coronavirus vaccine. Dr Deepsha Agrawal, a student at Oxford University, shared her experience over the phone with us. She took her first dose of Pfizer vaccine ten days ago and has experienced no symptoms.
Dr Deepsha Agrawal said that people should get vaccinated to protect themselves and others. And this young doctor has urged people to get the vaccine without hesitation. Twenty-seven-year-old Dr Deepsha Agarwal is the daughter of Shailesh Agarwal, former president of the Lions Club, and Deepti Agarwal, assistant director at the education department. She received her primary and secondary education from Carmel Convent School, Raigarh. After doing her MBBS from Jawaharlal Nehru Smriti Medical College, Raipur, she went to England for further education at John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford.
COVID vaccine is still not available in India. But there is growing concern that some people will not take it when it does become available, due to misconceptions or prejudices. But the young Radiology student has tried to reduce this uncertainty by sharing her experiences. She is confident that people will overcome their fears and accept the treatment.
The young doctor stated that the vaccine is safe and effective. She further said that she had received the second dose of vaccine, which is given twenty-one days after the first dose.
