PM Modi to interact with Covid-19 vaccine beneficiaries in Varanasi

Prime Minister Narendra Modi will interact with beneficiaries and vaccinators of the Covid-19 inoculation drive in Varanasi on Friday via video conferencing, said Prime Minister’s Office on Thursday.

The participants in the interaction will share their first-hand experience of vaccination, the PMO release stated.


“The world’s largest vaccination drive is underway in India. Our frontline warriors are getting vaccinated across the nation. At 1:15 PM tomorrow, 22nd January, I would interact with beneficiaries and vaccinators of Covid vaccination drive in Varanasi, via video conferencing,” PM Modi said in a tweet on Thursday.

Helmed by PM, the interaction comes within a week of the country’s vaccination drive – largest ever held globally – where more than 8 lakh healthcare workers have been vaccinated so far. The health ministry has maintained that there was no case of serious/severe AEFI attributable to vaccination to date.

Ten cases of adverse events following immunization (AEFI) — four in Delhi, two in Karnataka, and one each in Uttarakhand, Chhattisgarh, Rajasthan and West Bengal — have required hospitalisation so far, additional secretary in the Health Ministry Manohar Agnani said.
