Market committees across the city are helping traders, their employees and other support staff get vaccinated as they feel this will enable them to resume business in a full-fledged manner and protect their members and families from Covid-19. The traders’ association of Satyanarayan Park AC market in Burrabazar organised a vaccination camp last week and it became one of the first markets in the city to vaccinate every trader, their employees and the support staff.
Traders’ association at Bagri Market has vaccinated almost 350 people till Saturday in a government facility. Traders’ associations in Posta, Mehta Building, ChandniMarket, Lohapatti and New market are either working closely with the government to get their members vaccinated or organising inoculation drives on their own.
“Last week we inoculated everybody working in the 300 shops of the market at a two-day vaccination drive,” said Rajiv Changoiwala, executive member of the Satyanarayan Park AC Market Shopkeepers’ Welfare Association.

The restrictions imposed by the government on markets were eased last week but the market committees were asked to speed up the vaccination process.

“The government is helping us vaccinate thousands of labourers, drivers and helpers in Posta. We aim to vaccinate everybody as early as possible,” said Chandan Chakraborty, president of the traders’ association in Posta.
Bagri Market on Canning Street started the vaccination drive at a government facility on June 7. Till Saturday, 254 people were vaccinated. “We are aiming to get all the shop owners, their staff and others, engaged in the renovation of the market, vaccinated,” said Asutosh Singh, president of the Bagri Market Central Kolkata Traders’ Welfare Association.
