Earlier UNICEF India had tweeted about the drive saying, “A big moment for India as it starts the #LargestVaccineDrive today! Health workers are the first to receive the #COVID19 vaccine across India. #TogetherAgainstCOVID19.”Priyanka Chopra, replying to the tweet herself tweeted, “Bravo India! Congratulations to Indian authorities, medical & health teams for starting off the massive Covid vaccination drive. Forever grateful to our frontline heroes who have been risking their lives this past year to save others.”
Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched the vaccination programme on Saturday, and urged people to show the same patience for the COVID-19 immunisation drive that they had shown in fighting the Coronavirus pandemic. Sanitation worker Manish Kumar became the first person in India to get vaccinated against COVID-19 on Saturday.
