Karnataka Health Minister K Sudhakar also got himself vaccinated today.

“By taking the vaccine, COVID can be controlled and it can be eliminated from the State. There is no need for people to worry, I appeal to all those who are above 60-years of age and those with comorbidities to get registered and get vaccinated,” he said.
