On Wednesday, 07 April 2021 one more political personality batted for the Covid-19 vaccine. It is the renowned Congress leader, Rahul Gandhi. Rahul Gandhi slammed Centre over the Covid-19 vaccine access, as he tweeted that “. Every Indian deserves a safe life.” It’s ridiculous to debate needs and wants. He said these lines using a hashtag: #CovidVaccine. He assisted the demand to open Covid-19 vaccinations for all age groups, by saying that every Indian deserves a chance to a safe life.
Rahul Gandhi is the latest to upraise the demand of accessibility of coronavirus vaccinations for all age groups; even on Tuesday, the Indian Medical Association had advised Prime Minister Narendra Modi to allow all citizens above the age of 18 to get vaccinated; and the Delhi Chief Minister, Arvind Kejriwal and his Maharashtra counterpart Uddhav Thackeray had also made the same request.
It is to be noted that on Tuesday, the Health Ministry had commented that “the vaccine is required to be given to those who need it and not to those who want it. And The Covid-19 Vaccine is presently open and available to all Indians above the age of 45 years. The Centre on Tuesday had rejected to open up coronavirus vaccinations for all the age groups, by vocalizing that the aim was to cover the people who are the most vulnerable at the earliest. “The approach is that those vulnerable to mortality need to be covered soonest,” Union Health Secretary, Rajesh Bhushan said this at a press conference. India is currently facing the third phase of Covid-19 vaccination where those above 45 years are eligible to get vaccinated.
