Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Saturday urged the Central government to provide free Covid vaccine to everyone amidst the ongoing pandemic. He appealed to the Centre to step forward and save lives.
CM Arvind Kejriwal took to twitter today and said, "Coronavirus is the century's biggest pandemic. It is important to protect our people from it. I appeal to the Central government to ensure that everyone gets free vaccine. The expenditure on this will save lots of lives."
Health Minister Satyendra Jain had said last week, "The Delhi government is fully prepared to receive, store and administer COVID-19 vaccine to 51 lakh priority category persons in the city in the first phase of vaccination. The vaccine will be provided free to everyone on Delhi,"
Meanwhile, the Delhi government has already announced that the coronavirus vaccine will be provided free to people in the national capital, whenever it will become available in the country.
