No side effects reported anywhere, vaccine is completely safe more and more people should come forward to take the vaccine. Chief Minister himself along with other cabinet ministers will be undergoing vaccination in the second phase to boost the morale of the public. We have also requested hon’ble Prime Minister to allow us to vaccinate about 500 popular personalities, said the Minister.
It will be easy for a single Minister to work in tandem with both Health and Medical Education departments. It is necessary for conducting successful vaccination drive. There is a need to merge the departments to eradicate the pandemic. No matter which government is in power, one Minister should handle both the departments. Said Dr.Sudhakar.
It’s a big Challenge for the Chief Minister to allocate the available portfolios. But we have the challenge of vaccinating more and more people as of now. He said.
