Just about 50% of students at the GCC’s High School in Mylapore where the first camp to provide the vaccination for teens was arranged earlier this week took the jab.
27 boys and girls eligible for the jab took it on the campus when GCC team of a doctor and nurse held the camp.
The strength of students in Classes 9 and 10 at this school on V. P. Koil Street is 53.
Ever since classes were opened late last year for Classes 9 and 10, attendance of at least 40% has been irregular though not absent for long periods.
It is not clear what steps GCC will take to address the absence, rather big of the students at the camp to give the jab.
