On a day when the COVID-19 vaccine was rolled out for the general public amidst much hesitation and software glitches, a centenarian from Telangana put all concerns to rest and took the shot at Medicover Hospitals Hyderabad.
Jaidev Chowdhry, 100, a resident of Hyderabad and ex-entrepreneur, took the first shot at Medicover Hospitals on Monday.
According to officials, he was visibly happy and said that he was waiting for the day to be vaccinated to enjoy a more socially active life. He also said a lot of misinformation was being spread unnecessarily about the vaccine and people shoud come forward to take it not just for their own benefit but for their family and society.
It is learnt that nearly 2000 people took the vaccine until 2 pm in Telangana after the rollout began across 70 centres with a target of 13,000 beneficiaries.
