They are first vaccinated
The Union minister assured that the vaccine will first be made available to those who need it most, whether they can afford it or not. He also said he would be happy to take the first dose so that no one feels it cannot be believed.
This vaccine will help build immunity very quickly
The minister also provided information on the ongoing vaccine trial and its development in the country.
