Para petugas kesehatan melakukan vaksinasi hingga ke pedalaman Himalaya. Tantangannya bukanlah medan yang berbahaya, namun membujuk warga untuk mau divaksin.

Masrat Farid, a healthcare worker, prepares to administer a dose of Covishield vaccine to Rubia Begum inside a hut during a COVID-19 vaccination drive in Gagangeer, northeast of Srinagar, Indian controlled Kashmir on June 22, 2021. Farid has traveled long distances to vaccinate mostly shepherds and nomadic herders in the remote meadows of the Himalayan region of Indian-controlled Kashmir. Her challenge has not been the treacherous terrain but to persuade women to get COVID-19 vaccines. “Everywhere we go it seems rumors reach earlier than we do, and it makes our job difficult,” Farid said recently during a vaccination campaign at a high altitude meadow.
