I urge anyone who is willing to get the vaccine to do so. Let’s work together to rid India of COVID-19! On Twitter, the Prime Minister posted a photo of two healthcare workers injecting him with the Covid-19 vaccine.
“At AIIMS, I got my first dose of the Covid-19 vaccine. It’s remarkable how rapidly our doctors and scientists worked to improve the global battle against Covid-19. I encourage anyone who is willing to get the vaccine to do so. Let us work together to make India Covid-19-free!” After taking the jab, PM Modi said.
PM Modi arrived at AIIMS about 6:25 a.m., according to sources familiar with the situation, and P Niveda, a Puducherry resident, was one of the healthcare workers who gave him the vaccine.
People over the age of 60 and those over 45 with comorbidities will now be able to get inoculated against Covid-19 in either government or private hospitals, according to the Centre. According to the Center, qualifying residents can get vaccinated in one of three ways: advance self-registration, onsite registration, or facilitated cohort registration.
