Hyderabad: The Yashoda Foundation launched a special vaccination drive at Yellandu mandal of Bhadradri Kothagudem district in the State, on Sunday.

The drive, which was conducted in Challasamudram, Voddugudem, Repellewada, Dhaniyalpadu, Lachagudem, and surroundings regions, was held following strict social distancing norms by team of care givers from Yashoda Hospitals.
Emphasising the role of vaccination as an important tool to fight Covid-19, Dr Abhinav Gorukanti, Director, Yashoda Hospitals said , “We are grateful for this opportunity to serve the remotest part of Telangana State, thanks to the local social workers, administration and many leaders who came together to make the vaccination drive a success”.
The Yashoda Foundation through its CSR interventions continues to focus on the poorest of the poor and people living in the most difficult to reach terrains to receive the similar healthcare support such as that of urban citizens, a press release said.
