Prime Minister Narendra Modi today launched the country’s vaccination drive against the coronavirus. Speaking on the occasion, he thanked scientists for developing the vaccines in less than a year. He warned people against ignoring the second dose of vaccines. He appealed to the masses to continue following the anti-Covid norms. “Dawaai bhi, kadai bhi” he said.
Here are the top quotes of PM Modi’s address:
- For so many months, every household had one question: when will the vaccine come? Now it is here. In very less time.
- In just a few minutes, India will launch the world’s largest vaccination drive. I congratulate everyone. Those related to its development deserve special applause. They didn’t see festivals, day or night. They dedicated themselves.
- In general, vaccines take years to develop. But now we have two Made-In-India vaccines. This is an evidence of India’s scientific progress and talent.
- Those who need it the most will be vaccinated first – healthcare workers like doctors, nurses, etc in private and government hospitals will be the priority. After that, those in essential services are responsible for security and law – Army, sanitation workers etc.
- It is essential to administer two doses. Don’t forget to get the 2nd dose and they have to be one month apart.
