"Bravo India! Congratulations to Indian authorities, medical [and] health teams for starting...the massive COVID-19 vaccination drive. Forever grateful to our frontline heroes who've been risking their lives this past year" she posted on Twitter.
The first COVID-19 vaccine shots in India were given on Saturday to nearly two lakh frontline healthcare and sanitary workers as Prime Minister Narendra Modi rolled out the "world’s largest inoculation drive" against the pandemic that has caused 1,52,274 deaths and upended millions of lives in the country.
The Union Health Ministry said the vaccination drive was successful. Sanitation workers were the first to get the jabs in Delhi and some states.
A sense of joy and excitement was witnessed at medical centres across the country with the beneficiaries being administered the Covishield and Covaxin vaccines less than a year after India recorded the first coronavirus case in Kerala on January 30 last year.
