PM Modi Gets Second COVID Vaccine Dose


New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi took the second jab of COVID vaccine — 37 days after the first shot — at the Delhi-based AIIMS on Thursday. The PM urged all eligible to get inoculated against the deadly virus.

The prime minister was the first beneficiary on March 1 as the nationwide vaccination was extended to people above 60 and those over 45 with other illnesses.

According to the PM, a COVID shot was among the few ways to defeat the virus. PM Modi was witnessed wearing a face mask this time as he took the shot unlike the previous time, reported NDTV.

“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,” PM Modi tweeted while shared a link to the CoWin website, a portal to register for the vaccine.

The prime minister has taken the home-grown Bharat Biotech and the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR)-developed Covaxin.
