There was an all-party meeting led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday about the ongoing corona epidemic and vaccine. The meeting was attended by MPs of Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha. Apart from this, prominent leaders of the opposition party participated in it. After the meeting, the Prime Minister made a big talk about the Covid vaccine and said that the vaccine is likely to come in a few weeks. He indicated that the vaccine may be given to the first elderly, Corona Warriors.
He said that vaccination will start after the companies get the green signal. On the price of the vaccine, the Prime Minister said that discussions are going on with the states on its price. Prices will be fixed keeping public health in mind. At the same time, work is going on a special software which will give the stock and real-time information of the vaccine.
Important Points of PM Modi’s Address:
- We are one of the largest networks with experience in vaccination programs. Other necessary cold-chain storage and logistic support are being measured, with the help of the state government. A special software for vaccine stocks and real-time information has also been developed.
- The question about the cost of vaccines is obvious. The central and state governments are discussing the same thing. The cost of the vaccine will be decided keeping public health in mind and state governments will play a major role in it.
- We should ensure that rumors are not spread during vaccination, rumors that are anti-national and anti-human. Thus, all political parties should ensure that we protect all Indians from such rumors.
- India has traveled a very long journey from the feared, fear-filled atmosphere of February-March to the atmosphere of confidence and expectation of December today. Now that we are standing at the mouth of the vaccine, the same public participation, the same scientific approach, the same cooperation is very important in the future.
