Aligarh: Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) employees have been requested to provide the Medical Attendance Scheme (MAS) details whether they and their dependent family members have been inoculated against the Covid virus within three days.
The MAS Deputy Director, Dr Mohammad Salman Shah informed that the MAS seeks information such as how many employees have been vaccinated or not, names of beneficiaries, their MAS book numbers, employment ID numbers, which age groups they belong to (18-45 years or 45 and above), number of dependents who have taken the vaccine and the number of dependents who have registered for the vaccine.
“The information is required for futuristic health-related planning in order to streamline the vaccine drive”, said Dr Salman Shah.
