Sirsi: Karnataka Health Minister Dr K Sudhakar on Monday urged people to get the COVID vaccine shot, saying when Prime Minister Narendra Modi can get vaccinated there should not be any hesitation in taking it.

“It is necessary to get vaccinated.Prime Minister himself has taken the jab and set an example for others to follow,” Sudhakar said as he launched the vaccination drive in Sirsi.

People should take the jab without any hesitation, the minister said, adding that vaccination can prevent serious consequences of infection.

“All citizens above 60 years of age and people above the age of 45 with specified comorbidities are eligible for the vaccination,” the Minister explained.

The Minister said that 270 vaccine centres have been prepared for the third phase of vaccination.

Appealing to the people to come forward for inoculation, he said online registration was not necessary and individuals can directly walk up to the vaccine centres and get themselves registered.

Flaying those who spread rumours in social media regarding the vaccine, Sudhakar said people should only believe government authenticated information and follow it.

The Minister, who is a medical practitioner himself, pointed out that if one gets infected after getting the vaccination, there will not be much effect.
