PM Modi on Vaccination

All States and UTs must ensure that rumours around the vaccination programme are not allowed to spread: PM Narendra Modi

PM Narendra Modi’s closing remarks at the meeting with CMs on the roll-out of the COVID-19 vaccine. Excerpts via BJP India:

The discussion and cooperation between states and Centre has helped a lot in the fight against COVID and we’ve presented a good example of federalism.

India is entering a decisive phase of vaccination in the fight against COVID.

We’re starting the world’s largest vaccination programme from 16th January.

We’ve made necessary preparations for patients if the COVID vaccine shows any side-effects.

We already have a mechanism under the Universal Immunization Programme for situations such as these.

We’ve strengthened it specifically for COVID vaccination.

All States and UTs must ensure that rumours around the vaccination programme are not allowed to spread.

Corporate competition and vested interests of certain lobbies within and outside country may be at work to fuel the rumours.
