PM interacts with healthcare workers and beneficiaries of COVID vaccination programme in Goa

Panaji, Sep 18 (UNI) Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday interacted with healthcare workers and beneficiaries of the COVID vaccination programme here through a video conference on the completion of 100 per cent first dose coverage for the adult population in the state.
During the interaction, the Prime Minister enquired from Dr Nitin Dhupdale, Lecturer in Goa Medical College, how he convinced people to take COVID vaccines.
He also discussed the difference between the COVID vaccination campaign and the earlier campaign.
Dr Dhupdale praised the mission campaign mode of this particular campaign. Criticizing the opposition party, PM wondered how after vaccinating 2.5 crore people there were reactions from the opposition party instead of the vaccinated people.
The Prime Minister lauded doctors and other Corona warriors for the completion of 100 per cent first dose coverage for the adult population in Goa. He said this was an inspiration for the entire world.
The Prime Minister while interacting with the COVID beneficiary and activist Nazir Shaikh enquired how he decided to convince others to take the vaccines. He asked Mr Nazir about the difficulties faced by him in taking people to the vaccination centres and his experience in the vaccination drive.
The Prime Minister said the inclusion of ‘Sabka Prayas’ like Nazir Shaikh’s effort was a big factor in achieving results in the very important campaign.
The Prime Minister praised the socially conscious activists all over the country.
