Union Health Minister Dr. Harshvardhan said that ‘I am very happy today, the vaccine will work as a lifeline in the war against COVID-19. India has previously won the war against polio and smallpox and now India has reached the decisive phase of winning the battle against Covid-19 under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.’

Defense Minister Rajnath Singh said in a tweet that ”Today, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has taken the decisive step towards conquering the corona crisis by launching the biggest vaccination campaign not only in India but the whole world. In the first phase, it has been resolved to bring vaccine to three crore people.”

“India’s vaccines enjoy much credibility world over. We’ve earned this with our track record. Most children in the world get their vaccine shots of those made in India. The world’s trust is on our ‘Made in India’ vaccines will rise soon. These Indian vaccines are cheaper than foreign shots and easy to use. Some foreign doses are close to Rs 5,000/dose and need to be stored at minus 70 degrees,” said PM Modi, lauding India’s efforts in developing vaccines against Covid-19.
