Punjab joined the rest of the country in the historic roll-out of the Covid vaccine on Saturday, with five Health Care Workers (HCWs) getting the jab in the presence of Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh, who virtually kicked off the process to inoculate 1.74 lakh HCWs in the first phase.

Dr Sandeep Singh, Dr Charan Kamal, Dr Dimple Dhaliwal Srivastva, Computer Operator Asha Yadav and Class IV employee Surjit Singh were administered the first dose of Covishield Vaccine in the presence of the Chief Minister at Civil Hospital Phase-6. Captain Amarinder Singh also gifted saplings to these five healthcare workers, posted at Civil Hospital, Mohali, as a token of appreciation.

Interacting with media persons, the Chief Minister said it was his desire to get vaccinated first, but in accordance with the directives of the Government of India only HCWs could be covered in the first phase.

He said that the vaccine would be administered to the HCWs first, followed by the army and police personnel, in line with the guidelines of the Government of India.

He disclosed that he had written to the Prime Minister for permission for free distribution amongst the people belonging to the lower income Groups.
