NEW DELHI: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and his parents received the first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine at the government-run Lok Nayak Jai Prakash Narayan hospital here on Thursday.
The Covishield vaccine was first administered to Kejriwal’s parents, Govind Ram Kejriwal and Gita Devi, and then to the chief minister.
“My parents and I got vaccinated today. All of us are feeling fine. There should not be any doubt about the vaccine anymore and I would request more and more people to get vaccinated,” the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) supremo told reporters.
The Delhi government will open more vaccination centres for the public if the need arises, he added.
During the second-phase of the inoculation drive that started on March 1, people aged 60 years and above and those in the 45-59 age group with specific comorbidities are being administered the vaccine at 192 hospitals across Delhi.
