It’s a great moment, especially because unlike past where we had to rely on importing various products like PPE or N95; now we have vaccines which are being manufactured in India itself. we do not have to rely on vaccines coming from outside. They are cost-effective and easy to administer between 2 to 8 degrees centigrade”, said Guleria.

The AIIMS Director also cautioned that people with disabilities and disorders have higher chances of developing the disease and may get missed out. He said that the aim is to decrease mortality by vaccinating more vulnerable group and then start vaccinating enough number of people so that good amount will have immunity against the virus.
