SYMA to conduct vaccination camp @ Triplicane on 26th & 27th May 2021

I love My Nation – Mera Bharat Mahan hai ! .. .. I appreciate and thank millions of Health workers; I appreciate, Greater Corporation of Chennai, Corporation Hospitals,  Tamil Nadu Govt, CM, and Health Secretary.  I thank and appreciate our Hon’ble Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modiji, our Central Govt and officials for the way they have handled Corona.  Initially there were reports that rich countries with their improved medical care and riches would handle Covid well, while 3rd world countries would find it extremely to contain the spread and provide health care for its citizens.

India has with the strategic plans, implementation and strict lockdown in the initial days has contained Corona well.  .. .. now Vaccines have come and the way India is handling it – distributing life-saving drugs to so many countries and in seamless distribution across the Country has really stood out.  The world's largest vaccination drive in India, which began on January 16, has cumulatively inoculated close to 20 Crore people.

For so many decades – life was simple – individuals had their own problems but collectively we only thought of inflation, price rise, and something like that .. 2020 changed the way, the Globe thought and lived !  ..  Corona .. threatened humanity as it wiped out millions.   Across the globe, as could be read and understood, it is so tough to get vaccination.  In UK – one needs to complete   vaccine request form, and get added to the database of those requesting to receive the COVID-19 vaccine.   Back home the Union Govt with its strategic management has ensured that vaccines are available for the masses and that too free in Govt centres; at a very low cost in nominated Private hospitals.  The COVID vaccine was launched on 16th January, 2021. The first group was intended only for  healthcare and frontline workers. The second group was to be persons  over 60 years of age as of January 1st, 2022 and persons between 45 and 59 years with comorbid conditions.  

Now the  Vaccines are available for people over 18 years of age too .. .. that too closer your home @ Triplicane.  Srinivas Young Men’s Association (SYMA) in association with Greater Chennai Corporation is organizing a Vaccination camp at its medical centre at 37 Car Streeet, Triplicane, Chennai 5 tomorrow & day after.

So even during the lockdown – step out with purpose – come to SYMA Medical centre, preferably wearing a double mask, carry a sanitizer, practice social distancing, register yourself, wait for your turn and take the vaccination.

All the best to you and this is the passport to your good health !!!

Here are the details : 



Vaccination for COVID-19 is voluntary.  At SYMA medical centre, it would be ‘Covishield’.  People above 45 and those who are due to take their second dose too can come and have the vaccination. Here is some do’s and don’t’s: -

Before vaccination

·         In case a person has allergies to medication, or drugs, it is important to get an all-clear from a medical practitioner. A complete blood count (CBC), C-reactive protein (CRP), or Immunoglobulin-E (IgE) levels can be checked under medical advice.

·         One should eat well and take medicines, if prescribed, ahead of vaccination. One should try to be as relaxed as possible; counselling can help people who are feeling anxious.

·      People with diabetes or blood pressure need to keep these in check.

·        People who have received blood plasma or monoclonal antibodies as part of Covid-19 treatment, or those who have been infected recently should take medical advice as appropriate

After vaccination

·         A recipient of the vaccine is monitored at the vaccine centre itself to guard against any immediate severe allergic reaction. People are allowed to leave only after it has been ascertained that this is not the case.

·         Side effects like pain at the injection site and fever are common. This is no reason to panic. Some other side effects like chills and fatigue might also be expected, but these go away in a few days.  Many may not experience any of these !

Vaccines teach our immune system how to recognise and fight an external threat — in this case, the virus that causes Covid-19. It typically takes a few weeks after vaccination for the body to build protection (immunity) against the virus.  This means that a person could still get infected by Covid-19 in the few days immediately following the vaccination, because the person would not have had enough time to develop immunity.  Therefore, basic precautionary measures must be followed even after vaccination. Face masks, hand hygiene, and physical distancing in public places must not be abandoned just because a vaccine has been taken. Cough/sneeze etiquette also needs to be followed.


Hail our Nation, Appreciate our front line fighters – the health workers, Greater Chennai Corporation - appreciate the State and Central Governments.

Appreciate the good work of SYMA President, Vice-Presidents, Committee Members & volunteers  and Sri SR Ragunathan   in coordinating with Greater Chennai Corporation and in bringing vaccine closer to your doorstep. 

With regards – S. Sampathkumar
