The nation is dealing with the deadly Coronavirus for more than a year and as the second wave has hit the globe like a storm, medical amenities face a lack of resources.
To prevent the spread of the virus, the Centre opened the Covid-19 vaccination from all people above the age of 18. As soon as the decision was put in place, Bollywood celebrities were quick to register themselves and receive the jab.
Actress Rasika Dugal is the latest celebrity to have received the first dose of Covid-19 vaccine. She took to her Instagram handle to share the same and also urged her followers to register themselves for the same. The actress also lauded the hospital staff and the BMC for the smooth functioning.
Rasika wrote: “And finally I am 18! Vaccinated. First jab done. Please register yourself if you haven't yet. Even though getting an appointment took multiple tries (from @mukulchadda who aced the fastest finger first act with help from covialerts.in). Once there, it was all smooth and streamlined. Thank you to the very brave frontline workers, to @mybmc and to the people at #NairHospital for making the process seamless. And for the first time this week, I felt hopeful... the most desirable side effect. #GetVaccinated #BreakTheChain #IndiaFights Corona”
Rasika shared two pictures, a selfie as she protected herself with a shield and mask, and another picture of the vaccination centre.
Recently, Radhika Madan and Pulkit Samrat also stepped out to take their vaccination shots and shared the same on social media to encourage others to do the same.
