Prime Minister Narendra Modi has taken his first dose of the Covid-19 vaccine at AIIMS and appealed to all those who are eligible to get inoculated.

Sister P Niveda, from Puducherry, administered Bharat Biotech’s COVAXIN to the prime minister, sources said.

“Took my first dose of the Covid-19 vaccine at AIIMS. Remarkable how our doctors and scientists have worked in quick time to strengthen the global fight against COVID-19,” Modi tweeted after taking the vaccine shot. “I appeal to all those who are eligible to take the vaccine. Together, let us make India COVID-19 free!” Prime Minister Narendra Modi said.

The prime minister also posted a picture of himself taking the first dose of the vaccine in which he is seen sporting an Assamese Gamocha and getting inoculated with a smile on his face.

Sister Niveda and a second nurse from Kerala can be seen in the picture posted by Modi.

The prime minister went to AIIMS without any arrangement of “route” on the roads, thus choosing early morning to ensure no inconvenience to people, the sources said.

The government had announced that everyone above 60 years of age and those over 45 years with comorbidities will be able to get the Covid-19 vaccine from March 1 for free at government facilities and for a charge at many private hospitals.

Citizens will be able to register and book an appointment for vaccination, anytime and anywhere, using the Co-WIN 2.0 portal or through other IT applications such as Aarogya Setu.
