(G.N.S) Dt. 13
To motivate the people in tribal habitation for getting vaccinated against Covid-19, Telangana Governor Tamilisai Soundararajan took her second dose of COVID-19 vaccine along with a group of tribal women at KC Thanda, in Maheshwaram mandal of Ranga Reddy district.
Seated along with tribal women, who came clad in rich traditional attire, the Governor took the second dose, evoking instantaneous applause from the tribal people and the medical and health staff present in the primary health centre (PHC).
The Governor also appreciated the efforts of Chief Minister K. Chandrashekar Rao in effectively containing the pandemic in the state and in taking the vaccination drive forward in the state.
Dr Soundararajan said Prime Minister Narendra Modi had made a ‘Himayalayan effort’ in ensuring that our country developed indigenous vaccines. “Indigenous vaccine development is the biggest achievement of our country. Even many developed countries do not have their own vaccine. We have helped many countries by supplying vaccines. We are witnessing the world’s largest vaccination in our country,” she added.
“I just want to set an example by taking the vaccine at their remote tribal habitation and motivate the tribal people to overcome the vaccine hesitancy and come forward to get vaccinated”, she said.
