We willingly informed the Chief Minister that we are ready to provide free services in the vaccination programme for COVID-19. We are ready to be a part of the vaccination programme, planning of the programme, and other necessary support.”

He said all their members work in private and government hospitals and health facilities while they can also provide the necessary nursing support for the same.
