‘Only way to fight Covid’: Shah urges citizens to get vaccinated.
Appealing to citizens to get vaccinated at the earliest and not believe in rumours, Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Sunday called upon party workers in rural areas to ensure that not a single person remains without being vaccinated in their villages.
Shah was inaugurating or laying foundation stone of various developmental projects in Gandhinagar Lok Sabha constituency and attended two public programmes in Bopal and Sanand areas of Ahmedabad.
In Bopal, Shah said, “A comprehensive vaccination campaign has been launched in Gujarat under the leadership of Chief Minister Vijay Rupani and Deputy Chief Minister Nitin Patel, making Gujarat the first in the country in per million of vaccinations. In Ahmedabad, 86 per cent residents above 45 years of age have been vaccinated, while in the 18-44 years of age group, 32 per cent have been vaccinated. I appeal to all to get vaccinated as soon as possible. Do not believe in any rumour. All those remaining 14 per cent and 70 per cent youth as well as those remaining with the second dose should get vaccinated. Only then we will be successful in fighting against coronavirus.”
