Chennai (Tamil Nadu) [India], June 27 (ANI): A Chennai-based artist has designed an auto modelled after vaccines in an attempt to spread awareness about COVID-19 vaccinations and to encourage people to take their shots.
The artist, Goutham, founder of the art firm R Kingdom, made the design out of waste pipe, old plastic bottles and other discarded materials.
The auto has been painted a light blue colour from top to bottom and features large replicas of syringes protruding from all sides. A large replica of a vaccine vial has also been mounted at the top to represent COVID-19 vaccines.
"Many people are afraid of getting vaccinated. Through this special auto, I hope to make people understand the importance of vaccines, especially amid the COVID-19 pandemic," Goutham said.
He added that the result of the drive had been positive so far.
In the tie-up with the Greater Chennai Corporation, Goutham has also created 'COVID helmets' and 'COVID weapons' to spread awareness and distributed pamphlets explaining the importance of getting vaccinated. (ANI)
