Kolkata/IBNS: Kolkata Municipal Corporation (KMC)'s chairman of board of administrators and West Bengal Minister, Firhad Hakim, on Wednesday got vaccinated in the third phase of trial of India's indigenous vaccine candidate against Covid-19, Covaxin.

The third phase trial was inaugurated in the city by West Bengal Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar at Kolkata's National Institute of Cholera and Enteric Disease (NICED)  on Tuesday.

After getting vaccinated, Hakim, who became the second candidate to take the dose of Covaxin in the trial, said, "I am fully fine after getting vaccinated."

"I don't care even if I die. My vaccination will be fruitful when the entire country will get vaccinated," he said.

A total of 1,000 people will participate in the third phase of the vaccine trial of Covaxin developed by Indian biotechnology company Bharat Biotech.
