Ahmedabad/IBNS: Indian cricket head coach Ravi Shastri Tuesday received the first dose of Covid-19 vaccine as the second phase of vaccination drive began a day ago.

"Got the first dose of COVID-19 vaccine. Thank you to the amazing medical professionals & scientists for empowering India against the pandemic. Extremely impressed with the professionalism shown by Kantaben & her team at Apollo, Ahmedabad in dealing with COVID-19 vaccination," he tweeted.
