India will soon start the world’s largest vaccination campaign, says PM Modi


Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Monday that India is about to start the world’s largest vaccination program, a day after the country formally approved the emergency use of two vaccines against the coronavirus disease (Covid-19). .

“The whole country is in debt to all the scientists and technicians,” Prime Minister Modi said while addressing the National Metrology Caucus by videoconference.

This will help prepare a new generation of young scientists in the coming tomorrow, he added.
