Prime Minister Narendra Modi has written to all vaccinators, appreciating their efforts for helping India cross the milestone of 200 crore doses of the Covid vaccine. Highlighting the critical role of health workers, Prime Minister Modi asserted that future generations will be proud of India’s achievement in meeting its resolve after the virus spread.
According to Ministry of Health statistics, 98 percent of the adult population has received at least one dose and 90 percent are fully vaccinated against Covid-19. The government has opened up free preventive doses to all adults in a bid to push the lagging booster drive.
Here is the text of PM Modi’s letter to the vaccinator:
With your active participation, India has scripted history, once again!
Our journey of covid vaccination started on 16th January 2021 and we reached another important milestone on 17th July 2022. It was a memorable day for the country as we completed administering 200 crore vaccine doses in our fight against Covid-19.
Saving lives is critical, especially during a once-in-a-century global pandemic. Our vaccinators, health workers, health care workers and frontline workers have played a critical role in protecting Indians. It is a commendable example of dedication to duty and delivering when most needed.
From the coldest mountains to the hot deserts, from remote villages to dense forests, the Covid-19 vaccination program left nothing behind and showed that New India excels at last-mile delivery. The scale and speed that India has given to the world’s largest vaccination program is amazing and it is because of the efforts of people like you.
On this historic occasion, I applaud your contribution to India’s COVID-19 vaccination program and commend you for being at the forefront of such a critical, life-saving mission.
The achievement of 200 crore vaccine doses shows the strength of our nation’s democratic, compassionate and service-oriented politics. Future generations will cherish the story of India’s courage to deliver in the face of crisis.
My best wishes to you and your family!
