New Delhi: As he greeted citizens on National Vaccination Day on Wednesday, Union Health Minister Mansukh Mandaviya dedicated a song to the country’s “health army.”
In a tweet today, the Health Minister said in Hindi, “We shattered the fluke’s moonlight whenever there was a sense of sadness in this place… We will bring you the light of the stars… It was daybreak with that illumination. This song is dedicated to the valour and heroic efforts of our health army. They are the reason we live in such a secure country today. #NationalVaccinationDay salutes such individuals.”
All Government COVID vaccination centres are offering free COVID-19 vaccinations to all recipients aged 12 to 14 to commemorate National Vaccination Day. This age group is receiving Corbevax, a COVID-19 vaccine developed by Biological E. Limited in Hyderabad. Furthermore, because the comorbidity condition for this age group has been eliminated, all people over the age of 60 are now eligible for a prophylactic dose. According to a statement released today by the Health Ministry, the precaution dose (the same as the previous two doses) will be given 9 months (36 weeks) after the second vaccine.
