PM Modi Takes The Shot On Day One Of India’s COVID Vaccination Round Two
He was administered the first part of the two-dose indigenous Covaxin at AIIMS in Delhi today morning, after which he tweeted the news and urged all those eligible to come forward to take the inoculation to combat the global fight against the pandemic
As India starts its second round of its vaccination drive against Coronavirus today (1 March), Prime Minister Narendra Modi became the first to take the inoculation at Delhi’s All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) in the morning. He was given the Bharat Biotech manufactured Covaxin and he will take his second shot after 28 days.
During this phase, senior citizens above the age of 60 years and people with specified comorbidities in the 45-59 years age group will be eligible to take the indigenous double-shot dosage. During the first leg, 1.4 crore health professionals and frontline workers received the vaccination.
Sister Niveda, the nurse who administered the vaccine to Modi was all praises for him. She said he was cordial and friendly and reportedly told her that he did not even feel the injection after he took it.
The PM’s decision to take the shot is also seen as an attempt on the centre’s part to silence the opposition and put to rest all negative rumours around the inoculation’s efficacy.
After taking the injection, the PM tweeted the news and applauded the doctors and scientists for their quick turnaround time to produce an effective immunisation to combat the global health crisis. He also appealed to those who are qualified to come forward and take the same.
