Prime Minister Narendra Modi got his second dose of the Covid vaccine today at Delhi’s AIIMS, 37 days after he received his first shot, and urged all eligible people to get inoculated.
PM Modi was the first beneficiary on March 1 as the second phase of nationwide vaccination against coronavirus began.
Tweeting a photo of him taking the vaccine, the Prime Minister said vaccination is among the few ways to defeat the virus.
“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 and shared a link to the CoWin website, a portal to register for the vaccine.
The two nurses who administered the vaccine to the prime minister are P Niveda, who had also given him the first shot, and Nisha Sharma.
Ms Niveda is from Puducherry while Ms Sharma is a native of Punjab.
