Happy that Covid19 vaccination has commenced and we have started with health workers.
We will gradually start vaccinating other people as well.
I have written to PM Narendra Modi Ji to request him to provide free vaccination for lower income groups.
Happy to also share that along with launch of Covid19 vaccination drive today, we have launched statewide scheme for allotment of 7219 fair price shops in the State which will provide direct and indirect employment to 30,000+ people.
PM Modi launches pan-India rollout of COVID-19 vaccination drive :
Today, many of those scientists who had been involved in making the vaccine against Corona for the past several months deserve special praise.
It usually takes years to make a vaccine. But in such a short time, India developed not one, but two Made in India vaccines
All the healthcare workers and frontline workers will get the vaccine first.
The government will take care of the expenses of COVID vaccination for 3 crore healthcare and frontline workers in India.
The entire vaccination process will happen on CoWin App.
Don’t let your guard down after the first dose, keep wearing mask and follow all protocols.
Never before has this large-scale vaccination campaign been run in history. There are more than 100 countries in the world whose population is less than 30 million. And India is vaccinating 3 crore people in its first phase of vaccination.
Only India, China and America are vaccinating so many people. Phase 2 will cover 30 crore Indians
In the second phase, we have to take it to the number of 30 crores. Those who are elderly, who are suffering from serious illness, will get vaccinated at this stage.
India’s medical system & our scientists have a lot of credibility throughout the world. We have gained this trust because of our track record.
Our fight with Corona has been about self-confidence and Aatma Nirbharta. To fight this difficult battle, we never gave up our belief and confidence.
India’s vaccines are built on technology that is tried and tested in India. These vaccines adapt to Indian conditions. They will give India a decisive victory in the fight against Corona.
Indian vaccines are much cheaper than foreign vaccines but are equally good. There are some vaccines abroad, whose single dose cost up to ₹5,000 & have to be kept in freeze at -70 degree temperature
