Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday launched the pan India rollout of COVID-19 vaccination drive through video conferencing, which is the world’s largest vaccination program.
The Prime Minister said India’s COVID-19 vaccination campaign is based on very humane principles. He said people who need it the most will get the corona vaccine first.
He stressed that this type of large-scale vaccination campaign has never before been run in history. He pointed out that India is vaccinating three crore people in its first phase of vaccination. Mr Modi added that in the second phase, 30 crore people will be vaccinated. He said there are only three countries in the world with a population over 300 million – India, China and America.
The Prime Minister praised those scientists who had been involved in making the vaccine against Corona for the past several months. He exuded pride how two Made in India vaccines were readied in such a short period.
PM Modi highlighted the need to have two doses of corona vaccine. Between the first and second doses, a gap of about one month will be kept. The body will develop the immunity against the corona only 2 weeks after the second dose. He said India’s fight against COVID 19 has been one of self-confidence and self-reliance.
