Manipal Academy of Higher Education in a bid to ensure safety for all its students will be organising a free vaccination drive for all the students across its institutions. In this endeavour MAHE plans to vaccinate 25,000 students.

Students are the backbone of MAHE and it is our responsibility to immunise them to safe guard their health and wellness. In this COVID Pandemic that is ravaging the entire world, vaccination and COVID appropriate measures are the only things that keep everyone safe. Our endeavour is to help speedy vaccination of our students and do our bit to the national effort of vaccination for all.
