Vaccination centre

The Permanent Vaccination Centre (PVC) housed inside the Rotary Service Centre is popular among the people in the city. Since 1999 when it was set up, the PVC has been administering vaccines against various diseases for children from economically weak families, either free or at a subsidised charge.

The centre has 21 staff and Rotaractors too pitch in with the clerical work.
