105-year-old Kartar Kaur becomes the flag bearer for vaccination against corona

A worldwide vaccination campaign against the coronavirus is in full swing.  In Punjab too, every person above the age of 45 years is being vaccinated on the instructions of the Government of India.  While this vaccination is being given full support by educated and intelligent people, but under the blind influence of ignorance, some people are creating superstitions and misconceptions about this vaccination. On such an occasion, Kartar Kaur, a 105-year-old lady from Moga, carried the flag to create awareness among the people, where she and her family have been vaccinated.

Although Mata Kartar Kaur belongs to village Bhinder Khurd, she is now living with her son Harpinder Singh in Moga.  She along with her family got vaccinated in a camp in Ward No. 3.  The camp was organized under the leadership of his grandson and former councillor Manjit Singh Mann. More than 188 people were vaccinated in the camp.  At present Mr Manjit Singh Mann’s wife, Amanpreet Kaur Mann is the Councilor of Ward No.3.
