Ram temple construction committee head Nripendra Misra takes COVID jab at AIIMS
New Delhi, Mar 04: Ram Temple construction committee chairperson Nripendra Misra on Thursday took a COVID-19 vaccine at AIIMS and praised the "controlled and methodical" mechanism put in by the hospital for the inoculation exercise.
The former principal secretary to Prime Minister Narendra Modi said he was happy to see that despite the rush, those arriving for vaccination did not run any risk of infection as they came in little contact with people, except nursing staff, while entering or leaving the cabin where the jab is administered.
Seventy-five-year-old Misra was given Bharat Biotech''s Covaxin.
He said it was very reassuring for him to see Modi taking the vaccine on March 1 when the drive to vaccinate those above 60 years of age and those over 45 years with comorbidities started.
