“One of the best ways to protect yourself and everyone around you is to get vaccinated against COVID-19,” RIMS stated in a release issued by its media advisor N Phillip Singh.  

Stressing that everyone needs to get vaccinated, RIMS urged the public that one must not feel that he or she is not fit enough or one is too old to get vaccinated. “Please come to the vaccine centre located in the DEIC building, RIMS, and get yourself checked by doctors and get vaccinated. It is a fully equipped centre to tackle any adverse event following vaccination,” it stated.
