Rahul Gandhi Enquires Modi Govt Of Booster Shots, Asks ‘Where Are Shots?’

Congress leader Rahul Gandhi raised his voice and asked the government when will it allow the booster shots to be administered

Today, amid the rising cases of the Omicron variant in India, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi raised his voice and asked the government when will it allow the booster shots to be administered. He also pointed out that the majority of Indians still remained unvaccinated.

Taking to Twitter, Gandhi shared a picture that claimed that only 42 per cent of the population will be vaccinated by the end of this year. Instead, he emphasized that 60 per cent of the population should be vaccinated to prevent a third wave.

Back on Monday, Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal urged the Centre to allow booster doses. During the Parliament’s Winter Session, the lawmakers also argued in favour of booster shots. Telangana Desam Party’s Jayadev Galla stressed the need to take quick decisions on booster doses for the full-vaccinated and to vaccinate those below 18.

The Centre has already stated that vaccinating the adult population with both doses will be its first priority ahead of booster doses. Meanwhile, a few experts suggested that India should have started booster doses by now at least for vulnerable populations and healthcare workers.
