Over 1.91 lakh people vaccinated on first day: Health Ministry

Jan 17, 2021 07:48 IST

The first Covid-19 vaccine shots in India were given on Saturday to nearly two lakh frontline healthcare and sanitary workers as Prime Minister Narendra Modi rolled out the world's largest inoculation drive against the pandemic that has caused over 1.5 lakh deaths and upended millions of lives in the country.
Over 1.91 lakh beneficiaries were inoculated with Covid-19 jabs at 3,351 session sites across the country and no case of post-inoculation hospitalisation has been reported so far, the government said.
In a virtual address, the PM Modi paid tribute to scientists and healthcare workers, who have been on the frontlines of the pandemic.
