Prime Minister Narendra Modi received his second dose of the Covid vaccine today at Delhi’s AIIMS – 37 days after his first shot – and urged all those eligible to get inoculated against the deadly virus.
Tweeting a photo of his vaccination, the Prime Minister said a Covid shot was among the few ways to defeat the virus. PM Modi was seen wearing a face mask this time as he took the shot unlike the previous time.
“Got my second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine at AIIMS today. Vaccination is among the few ways we have, to defeat the virus. If you are eligible for the vaccine, get your shot soon. Register on CoWin.gov.in”
PM Modi has taken the home-grown Covaxin developed by Bharat Biotech and the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR), which has been linked to vaccine hesitancy because of its clinical trials status.
The Prime Minister’s second vaccine dose was administered by two nurses, one of whom had given him his first shot as well. P Niveda was seen holding PM Modi’s arm in the photo while Nisha Sharma administered the dose.
