We finally received a timely gift from India, 20 lakh doses of vaccine for the coronavirus, and are thankful for it. Also, three crore vaccine doses that we purchased from the Serum Institute of India are set to arrive in the country in phases, and we will soon begin our inoculation campaign. It is a matter to be proud of, especially during these trying times. The elderly and frontline workers should be given priority during the vaccination phase. Those who receive the vaccine need to be monitored as well should any side effects occur, and health officials must remain alert. Moreover, the government must strictly monitor every step of the vaccination programme to prevent it from being mishandled and reaching the black market.
