Appreciating the excellent work done by the media personnel of Vadodara city as frontline warriors during Corona time, Dr. Hitendra Patel said that the state government is also concerned for the health of these media personnel just as they have practiced their religion without worrying about the family. The camp was organised so that journalist friends could be vaccinated against corona and perform their duties fearlessly. He also appealed to other citizens to take advantage of vaccination and build a safer society.
