Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath took his first dose of Covid-19 vaccine Monday.
He was administered the vaccine in Civil Hospital in Lucknow.
The chief minister thanked the Prime Minister Narendra Modi for making the vaccine available free of cost in the government centres.
The vaccine is being administered free of cost at government centres all across the country.
He appealed to the people not to lower the guard against the virus and follow Covid-19 appropriate behaviour all the time. He said, “The new Covid-19 wave is the result of our complacency in observing Covid-19 appropriate behaviour.”
So, he requested the people to keep taking all the precautions even after taking the vaccine. He expressed his gratitude to the scientists of the country for developing the vaccine.
The Government of India is making every effort to ensure the citizens are vaccinated at the earliest.
The Chief Minister also requested the people to take the vaccine when their turn comes.
Suddenly, Bharat realises it’s facing a new wave of the virus. The new cases are touching a lakh per day now.
