Cadets of the National Cadet Corps (NCC) Group Head Quarter Guwahati Units under the realms of NCC Directorate NER became the proud participants in activities associated with the first-ever COVID-19 vaccination at the Azara Hospital and Tola Ram Bafna Hospital.
The Cadets will be donning the colours of COVID-19 workers for the complete duration of COVID-19 vaccination with effect from 16 January 2021.
Sixteen cadets belonging to 1 Assam Battalion NCC and 60 Girls Battalion NCC took part in the first-day marshalling and lining up activities as they were requisitioned by the District Administration to assist in the delivery of the first dose of vaccination for frontline workers. For the subsequent days, Cadets ex 50 Air Sqn, 48 Naval unit, 47 R&V unit and 30 Engineer Battalion will be participating in the eventful activities.
NCC Cadets under Ex Yogdaan have been widely acclaimed throughout the COVID era by their multifarious activities to include assisting in Logistics and supply chain management, manning of helpline centres, data management, traffic and queue management. The undeterred NCC Cadets have thus carved a niche for themselves by maintaining a parallel line of defence of the nation.
The NCC Cadets will once again perform similar tasks after four weeks during the conduct of the second dose of vaccination.
