Sangita Reddy, Joint Managing Director, Apollo Hospitals Group said, “The COVID vaccination programme is critical for bringing the COVID pandemic to an end. We are proud to have achieved an important milestone today of administering the COVID vaccine to over 100,000 people that include our vulnerable senior citizens. A robust vaccination programme is the need of the hour, and we are glad for this opportunity to support and boost the Government’s efforts in ensuring that no eligible person is left out of the COVID vaccine programme. The vaccination programme for those most vulnerable amongst us comes at a crucial time when many states are reporting a rise in cases after a period of lull. Ensuring that everyone is able to get easily vaccinated as the programme expands to other age groups is of critical importance in the battle against COVID-19″.
