“Schools will provide camps for vaccination but for that we need some more time. It is not possible for us to vaccinate the students in just five days. At least till May 20, time be given. Moreover, no school is promoting online classes and we also want that students attend classes physically,” he stated.

On the other hand, parents are hesitant regarding the vaccination.

Nitin Goyal, president of Chandigarh Parents Association, said, “The fact is that parents are hesitating to vaccinate their children. They don’t feel comfortable because of the opinion that it is not safe for their wards. Instead, they should be given some more time to understand that vaccine is safe. But saying that children be restricted from attending physical classes isn’t done.”
