PM Narendra Modi has launched India's coronavirus vaccination drive via video conference. Addressing the nation, PM Narendra Modi said, "Everyone was waiting for this day with bated breath. Everyone kept asking when will the vaccine come. Its here and in a short span of time. In some minutes from now, the worlds biggest vaccination drive is to begin."
India is set to roll out the world's biggest vaccination programme today with over 3 lakh healthcare workers to be inoculated on the first day of the much-anticipated drive, which the government said is "probably the beginning of the end of COVID-19".
A total of 3,006 session sites across all states and union territories will be virtually connected during the launch at 10.30 am by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and around 100 beneficiaries will be vaccinated at each session site.
