New Delhi: Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Monday (April 5) received the first dose of COVID-19 vaccine at Civil Hospital in Lucknow.
The UP CM and BJP leader expressed gratitude to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Health Ministry after receiving the vaccine.
"I thank Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Health Ministry for making the vaccine available free of cost. I also thank the scientists of the country. The vaccine is completely safe. We all should take it when our turn comes," he was quoted as saying by ANI.
CM Adityanath urges people to take precautions:
Adityanath also urged people to take precautions and follow COVID appropriate behaviour even after they receive the coronavirus vaccine.
"I appeal to the people to take all precautions even after taking the vaccine. The new COVID-19 wave is the result of our complacency in observing COVID appropriate behaviour," the UP CM said.
