Covid-19: PM Modi, CM likely to receive the vaccine in phase 2 of the inoculation campaign | India News


NEW DELHI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi is likely to get vaccinated against Covid-19 in the second round of India’s vaccination campaign, according to sources.
All senior ministers will also receive the vaccines in the next phase of the vaccination campaign.
Official sources said that those over 50 will be covered automatically in the second phase.
This is what PM had said during a recent meeting with the CMs that politicians do not need to jump the line and should wait their turn.
PMs and most CMs are obviously in the group and could be covered, but “there is no confirmation on when exactly Modi or CM will be vaccinated.”
Around 270 million citizens, most of them elderly, will take the hit in phase 2.
