In its efforts to ensure that every citizen receives the COVID-19vaccine — no matter the terrain and the geographical challenges it brings up — the medical community across the world is going above and beyond its call of duty. Presenting one such example of duty and valour, a medical team assisted by Indian Army personnel were seen travelling on foot to Boniyar village along LoC in the Uri sector of Baramulla in a video.

The footage showed medical professionals travelling across the rugged mountains and streams to vaccinate the people of Boniyar village. News agency ANI shared the video on its social media handle that showed Indian Army personnel accompanying members of a medical team dressed in a blue PPE kit. The group of men can be seen trudging through the rough paths to provide vaccines to villagers who cannot access the medical facilities, especially amidst pandemic.

The team was also seen carrying the vaccines in a prescribed storage container, as they hiked through the rocky area in daylight while climbing a steep hill to get to the village located on a higher altitude next to the LoC.
