"Memorable Moment, We Even Clicked Pictures": Nurses Who Gave PM Modi His Second COVID-19 Vaccine Dose

New Delhi: On Thursday morning (April 8), Prime Minister Narendra Modi received his second dose of the COVID vaccine at Delhi’s AIIMS. The second dose was administered after 37 days from his first vaccine shot. Posting an update with pictures on his social media account PM Modi urged everyone who is eligible for getting the vaccine to get inoculated when required. He said,

Got my second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine at AIIMS today. Vaccination is among the few ways we have, to defeat the virus. If you are eligible for the vaccine, get your shot soon. Register on http://CoWin.gov.in.

PM Modi was the first beneficiary on March 1 when the nationwide vaccination widened to people above 60 and those over 45 with other illnesses. He has been given the home-grown Covaxin developed by Bharat Biotech and the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR), which has been linked to vaccine hesitancy because of its clinical trials status.

Apart from Prime Minister’s Narendra Modi big day as he completed this vaccination, it was a big day for two nurses at AIIMS as they administered the second vaccine dose to him, one of whom had given him his first shot as well. Speaking to the media at the hospital, Nisha Sharma, Nurse, Delhi AIIMS said,

Today in the morning only we got to know that Prime Minister Narendra Modi is coming to AIIMS for his second dose of vaccine, and we are incharge. We were very happy. After we vaccinated him, he spoke with us for few minutes, he asked where our hometown is. We also took some pictures with him. It was really a memorable moment that we were able to vaccinate him in this pandemic situation.

Talking about India’s coronavirus status, the country currently is witnessing a massive surge in infections. Over the past few weeks, India saw the biggest-ever daily surge, with more than a lakh of cases being registered on Monday (April 5). On Wednesday (April 7), India reported over 1.15 lakh new cases in 24 hours. The total number of infections is now over 1.28 crore.

On the vaccine front, India has been expanding its vaccination programme gradually. The country had started inoculations with frontline and healthcare workers and went on to people above 60 and those over 45 with other illnesses. In the latest round, all above 45 are being vaccinated. So far, over nine crore people have been vaccinated and apart from Covaxin, Pune-based Serum Institute’s Covishield, developed in partnership with Oxford University and pharma giant AstraZeneca, is also being used in the vaccination drive which began on January 16.

NDTV – Dettol Banega Swasth India campaign is an extension of the five-year-old Banega Swachh India initiative helmed by Campaign Ambassador Amitabh Bachchan. It aims to spread awareness about critical health issues facing the country. In wake of the current COVID-19 pandemic, the need for WASH (WaterSanitation and Hygiene) is reaffirmed as handwashing is one of the ways to prevent Coronavirus infection and other diseases. The campaign highlights the importance of nutrition and healthcare for women and children to prevent maternal and child mortality, fight malnutrition, stunting, wasting, anaemia and disease prevention through vaccines. Importance of programmes like Public Distribution System (PDS), Mid-day Meal Scheme, POSHAN Abhiyan and the role of Aganwadis and ASHA workers are also covered. Only a Swachh or clean India where toilets are used and open defecation free (ODF) status achieved as part of the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan launched by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in 2014, can eradicate diseases like diahorrea and become a Swasth or healthy India. The campaign will continue to cover issues like air pollutionwaste managementplastic banmanual scavenging and sanitation workers and menstrual hygiene
