Vaccination drive against COVID-19 begins today

India on Saturday began a nationwide vaccination drive against the novel coronavirus. The drive was launched by Prime Minister Narendra Modi at 10:30 am via video conferencing. Billed as the world's largest vaccination program, covering the entire length and breadth of the country, the drive aims to first inoculate millions of its healthcare and frontline workers and reach an estimated 3 crore people by the end of its first phase. A total of 3006 session sites across all states and union territories will be virtually connected during the launch. Around 100 beneficiaries will be vaccinated at each session site on the inaugural day, the union health ministry has said.

PM Narendra Modi today reassured the country that emergency use authorisation was given only after scientists were convinced of their safety and effectiveness, and urged people to beware of propaganda and rumours. Addressing the nation ahead of the launch of what he described as the world's largest vaccination programme, Modi said these vaccines will ensure a "decisive victory" for the country over the coronavirus pandemic, but asked countrymen to continue wearing masks and maintain social distancing even after receiving the jabs. 

Meanwhile, the total number of global coronavirus cases has surpassed 94 million, including 2,017,757 fatalities. As many as 67,340,405 patients are reported to have recovered.

    Vizag navy hospital vaccinates 40 frontline workers for COVID-19

    As many as 40 frontline workers have been vaccinated for coronavirus at a naval hospital in Andhra Pradesh's Visakhapatnam on Saturday.

    "Covishield vaccine was given to 40 frontline Covid warriors including doctors, nurses, paramedical staff, health workers, ward sahayakas and medical attendants at INHS Kalyani, Visakhapatnam," said a city-based defence official.

    Atul Kumar Jain, vice admiral and flag officer commanding-in-chief, Eastern Naval Command (ENC) launched the vaccination drive.

    Andhra Pradesh Industries Minister Mekapati Goutham Reddy said there is no fear of coronavirus with the arrival of indigenous vaccines.

    He said it is safe to take the vaccine shot and called on people to go for it. Reddy highlighted that vaccines from overseas were used earlier, which has changed now as they are being manufactured in India itself.

    In Nellore district, the vaccine will be administered at 26 places for 100 people each on the first day of vaccination. In total, 2,600 people will be vaccinated.

    PM Modi addresses nation

    PM Modi launches world's biggest COVID-19 vaccination drive. Here are the pointers from his address to the nation

    • Everyone was asking as to when the vaccine will be available, it is available now. I congratulate all the countrymen on this occasion
    • Normally, it takes many years to make a vaccine but in such a short span of time, not one, but two 'Made in India' vaccines are ready. Meanwhile, the work on other vaccines is progressing at a fast pace
    • I want to remind people of the country that two doses of the corona vaccine are very important. Experts have said that there should be a gap of one month between both vaccinations
    • I request you not to make the mistake of taking off the mask and not maintaining social distancing after getting the first dose because immunity develops after the second dose
    • Such a vaccination drive at such a massive scale was never conducted in history. There are over 100 countries having less than 3 crore population and India is administering vaccination to 3 crore people in the first phase only. In the second phase, we've to take this number to 30 crores
    • The country had been waiting impatiently for this day
    • We have got two vaccines in such a short time, it's a testimony to our scientists' talent and skills
    • Our vaccination programme driven by humanitarian concerns; those exposed to maximum risk get priority
    • PM Modi turns emotional remembering the nation's fight against COVID-19, says, "Today when we take a look at the last year, we realise that we have learned a lot as a person, a family and as a nation"
    • This disease kept people away from their families. The mothers cried for their children and had to stay away. People could not meet their elderly admitted at hospitals. We could not bid adieu to those with proper rituals who died due to corona
    • Scientists gave nod to two made-in-India vaccines after being sure of their effects, don't pay heed to rumours, propaganda
    • India's vaccines enjoy global credibility because of their track record
    • In the fight against corona, we've set an example for the world at many steps. When countries left their citizens, stuck in China amidst this pandemic, on their own, India stepped up and evacuated not only Indians but also people of other nations under the Vande Bharat mission
