New Delhi/IBNS: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday urged countrymen to shed vaccine hesitance and get inoculated in large numbers.

Speaking during his monthly radio programme Mann Ki Baat, Modi said he has been fully vaccinated and also cited the example of his mother, underscoring that vaccines are safe.

He said, "A year ago, the question that was confronting all was – When will the vaccine come! Today, in a day, we are administering the Made in India vaccine to lakhs of people, free of cost…and this indeed is the strength of New India."

Urging all to get vaccinated, Modi said: "At many places, in order to end vaccine hesitancy, myriad organizations and members of civil society have come forward…and together, they are doing a wonderful job."

He also requested citizens to not fall prey to rumours about vaccines.

"Those who are spreading rumours on vaccines, let them be. We all will do our work and ensure people around us get vaccinated. The threat of Covid remains and we have to focus on vaccination as well as follow COVID-19 protocols," said the PM.
