The Alumni Association of the National University of Juridical Sciences (NUJS), Kolkata, along with their student-run Alumni Cell initiated a nationwide vaccination drive which started from the city of Bangalore on June 5, 2021. Members of the alumni and their families were vaccinated at Vikram Hospital on Miller Road in Central Bangalore. Nishant Beniwal, the President of the Alumni Association said "Our alumni network is spread across the entire country and beyond. Through this drive, we are trying to facilitate the vaccination process for all the members of the NUJS family."

On 12th June, The workers in the mess, security, housekeeping and other unorganized sections of the University staff were vaccinated along with their families and dependants. The vaccination for all such workers and their families was completely funded by the Alumni body. Aritri Roy Chowdhury from the Alumni Association said "We are also conducting a similar drive at Yashoda Hospital in Hyderabad today for the members of our NUJS family."

The organizers arranged for private cabs to pick up the workers and their families from different parts of the state. Cabs left as early as 4 AM to travel more than a hundred kilometres to pick up the beneficiaries. "We set up a volunteer network of students who called the workers and got them registered on the Cowin app. They also worked tirelessly to work out the logistics on the day of the vaccination in Kolkata" said Ankit Pal, the coordinator of the student-run Alumni Cell of the University.

Further, alumni members, teaching and non-teaching staff, as well as students, were also given the opportunity to avail the facility in this drive.

Through this drive, the alumni contributed towards the safety and well-being of the members of the NUJS family.
