Immunization program is not going at per the urban town areas on in some of the remote villages of the state. On the one hand, there is an emphasis on testing to prevent corona infections, and on the other hand, there have been over 16 Lakh vaccinations in the state so far.
As per the Covid-19 latest media bulletin, the first dose has been given to over 11 lakh beneficiaries and the second dose has been given to over 5 lakh beneficiaries.
Vaccination is going on in ADC areas of the state too. But when it comes to vaccination in tribal rural areas, the health workers is facing an undesirable situation. Tribes living in remote areas are reluctant to get vaccinated in any way. In their words, if they were vaccinated, they will become useless. Health workers have repeatedly failed to persuade them to take the vaccine. The tribes are fleeing when they see the health workers. 
For the last few days, the health workers have had to face various experiences while vaccinating in some villages of  the ADC areas of Dhalai and Sepahijla district. Yesterday also such a incident at Machli ADC area under Dhalai district. People living in these  remote areas are reluctant to accept that there is a virus called Covid-19. They don't want to know or understand about Covid.
It is alleged that there is not much publicity about covid vaccination in rural areas. The tribes were not made aware. Many of the people in the tribal part still believe in their local old methods of treatment.
