COVID-19 vaccination strategy: PM Narendra Modi chalks out plan for India; check who\'s on priority

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday said a COVID-19 vaccine may be ready in a few weeks as he noted that experts believe the wait for it will not be long, and asserted that the vaccination drive in India will begin as soon as scientists give the nod.

Noting that there have been questions about the price of the COVID-19 vaccine, the prime minister said it is natural to have such queries and asserted that public health will be accorded top priority in the matter and states will be fully involved. This is the second all-party meeting called by the government over the pandemic issue since its outbreak.

In his remarks at an all-party meeting held virtually to discuss India's COVID-19 vaccination strategy, PM Modi said healthcare workers involved in treating coronavirus patients, frontline workers, who include police personnel and municipal staff, and old people suffering from serious conditions would be inoculated on priority.

Opposition leaders also expressed their views in the meeting with Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad saying that a COVID-like pandemic can pose a threat to the country's internal security and policymakers should address this challenge.
