Chief Minister Adityanath took a round of the Balrampur Hospital and met the health workers who were administered vaccines to enquire about their well-being.
“Today is a day of immense happiness and excitement. India is the first country which has launched two vaccines,” the chief minister said.
The vaccine developed in the country is very effective and also reasonably priced, he said. Emphasising the need to maintain COVID protocol and social distancing even after getting vaccinated.
Also, an estimated 300,000 health care workers across 3,006 vaccination sites inoculated on Saturday. Setting the tone for immunizing 30 million health care and frontline workers in the first phase. However, the first shot was administered in AIIMS, Delhi.
