Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday warned against vaccine hesitancy as he cited his mother’s example to encourage people to take the jab against Covid-19.
In the Mann ki Baat programme, PM Modi spoke to people from Dulariya village in Betul district of Madhya Pradesh and counselled them to take the vaccine amidst their doubts, marking an important conversation to help shed vaccine hesitancy, particularly in rural areas.
“I have taken both doses. My mother is almost hundred years old, she has taken both vaccines too. Please do not believe any negative rumours relating to vaccines,” Modi said when villagers informed him about rumours surrounding the jab.
The prime minister asked the MP village to involve women in combating vaccine hesitancy and inform him once they had taken the jab.
